Honda Recall Acura TSX

Honda Recall Acura TSX
Honda announces recall to repair or recall of 167 000 Acura TSX in the United States market. Done because it involves the withdrawal age use power steering hoses shorter than necessary.

Problems found in the luxury sedan production in 2004 until 2008 with a 2.4-liter gasoline engine, four-cylinder. Acura parties, as reported by leftlinenews.com, last weekend, said that the hose can leak because the level of elasticity is reduced prematurely. Leakage can lead to smoke or even fire.

Until this news was revealed, the Acura claims found only one case of fires caused by these problems. Recall action will commence immediately, and notice to new customers will be held at the end of this May.

Honda Acty

The Honda Acty is a series of microvans by Japanese automaker Honda, designed for the domestic market. They are classified as Kei trucks, with very small overall dimensions, and a very small engine displacement (660cc or lower). They are designed to be economical, agile work vehicles, and generally lack luxury options, although air conditioning and power steering are available along with various trim, decoration, and customization options.

The base price of the pickup model is ?777,000 (approximately $7,300 USD), with the van starting at ?1,060,500 (approximately $9,950 USD) as of July 2008. The base model is mid-engine, rear drive. Four-wheel drive is available as an option on all vans, and all but one model of pickup truck, making the Acty one of a handful of mid-engine, AWD vehicles that are not designed as supercars.

The Acty is powered by a 12-valve straight-3 gasoline engine making 34 kW (45.5 hp) at 5500 rpm and 60 Nm (37 ft?lb) at 5000 rpm.
