    Honda recalls model year 2013-2015 Accords

    The drive shaft may corrode and fail

    American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 220,000 model year 2013-2015 Accords equipped with a 4-cylinder engine and a continuously-variable transmission that were originally sold, or ever registered, in Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

    The drive shafts were assembled with a lubricant that may have degraded the drive shafts' protective coating, making it more susceptible to damage from road salt or other contaminants, and potentially cause it to break.

    A broken drive shaft may cause a sudden loss of drive power. The vehicle could also roll away if the parking brake has not been applied before the vehicle has been exited. Either condition can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

    What to do

    Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the drive shafts, replacing both the left and right drive shafts -- if necessary -- free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin February 1, 2021.

    Owners may contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138.

    Honda recalls 1.4 million vehicles due to three separate safety issues

    Owners will receive recall notices by mail starting in January

    Honda has announced that it’s recalling more than 1.4 million cars for a variety of reasons. 

    In filings with the National highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Honda said it’s recalling the vehicles due to three separate issues: a software flaw, drive shafts that can break, and window switches that can overheat and lead to fires. 

    The recall related to the software flaw includes 737,000 Accords from 2018 to 2020 and Insights from 2019 and 2020. Honda said a programming flaw in a control computer can cause the rear camera, turn signals, and windshield wipers to malfunction. 

    The drive shaft recall covers 430,000 Honda Civic Hybrids from 2012, the 2007 through 2014 Honda Fit, the 2013 through 2015 Acura ILX and the 2013 through 2015 Honda Accord. The recalls affect vehicles in 22 states where salt is used to clear roads in the colder months. 

    The window switch recall affects about 268,000 CR-Vs from 2002 through 2006. Honda disclosed to the NHTSA that water can get into a driver’s window if open and cause an electrical short, which could possibly lead to an interior fire. The automaker said it’s aware of 23 fires that have been caused by the issue.

    Owners will be notified via mail in late January about when they should take their vehicles to a dealer for repairs. The automaker says owners should take vehicles in for repairs as soon as they get a recall notice. 

    Other recent recalls 

    Honda has recalled vehicles due to safety concerns several times in 2020. In August, the automaker announced that it was recalling more than 600,000 model year 2018-2020 Odysseys, model year 2019-2020 Passports, and model year 2019-2021 Pilots.

    Honda said flawed instrument panel control module software could cause the panel to fail to show critical information -- such as engine oil pressure and gear selector position -- until the next ignition cycle. 

    In April, Honda and Nissan announced the recall of more than 1.3 million vehicles manufactured with Takata PSDI-5D driver air bag inflators. The companies said the inflator may not function properly or could even explode in a crash due to a manufacturing error. 

    At the start of the year, Honda recalled about 2.7 million vehicles (mostly Acuras) with Takata airbag inflators. However, the inflators involved in that recall weren’t the same ones that were to blame for killing vehicle occupants after exploding. 

    Honda said older models from 1996 through 2003 might have defective Takata airbag inflators that could have been produced without the "appropriate seals" needed to deploy properly.

    Honda recalls model year 2021 Pilots with Continental CrossContact LX Sport tires

    The tire carcass may break causing a sudden loss of air

    American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 214 model year 2021 Pilots with Continental CrossContact LX Sport 245/50R20 102 H tires with DOT serial number A376 D3K9 2920 and mold numbers S-421920 and S-421921.

    The tires may have been cured for a time beyond the specification limits.

    Over-cured tires may develop a break in the sidewall resulting in sudden air loss or a belt edge separation which could lead to a tread/belt loss.

    Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

    What to do

    Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect all four tires and replace the tires that have the affected DOT serial number and mold number free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin January 11, 2021.

    Owners may contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is U8Y.
