Honda issues recall for 21 lakh Accords

Honda issues recall for 21 lakh Accords

Honda’s tryst with recalls seems to be never ending. After the Takata-airbag fiasco that involved millions of cars, Honda has issued a recall of over 2.1 million Accord cars to mitigate the chances of an engine bay fire caused by moisture and resulting in short-circuit of the battery sensor.

While the sensor in itself isn’t at fault, the sealant against moisture intrusion might not be sufficient which might result in the corrosion and rusting of the battery sensor resulting in an electrical short circuit. There is a chance of the short circuit resulting in fire due to high temperature in the engine bay.

Honda had begun investigating the issue when the first case of engine bay fire was reported in 2015 from Canada followed by a similar case in China in 2016 which led to the discovery of the issue. Almost 11.5 lakh cars manufactured between 2013 and 2016 have been affected in the US along with 10 lakh more cars across the world. 

In India, Honda has not sold this generation of the Honda Accord which is a part of the recall and hence there is a very slim chance for any of the cars in India of being on the affected list.
