Last month, Honda announced it recall nearly 1.2 million Accord vehicles made between 2013 and 2016. The company had received multiple reports of the cars’ battery sensors causing fires in the engine. According to Honda, the sensors may not be “sufficiently sealed” against moisture. As a result, substances such as road salt could enter the sensor and cause it to short, potentially causing a fire.
So far, there have been no reported injuries related to the incidences. However, Honda and its luxury car brand Acura have both been involved before in one of the biggest auto recalls in U.S. history. Millions of their vehicles were affected by exploding Takata airbags.
Honda said it would start notifying Accord owners affected by the latest battery recall by the end of July. If you think you have been affected by the defective battery, but you haven’t yet been contacted by your dealership or the company, call (888) 234-2138 or visit www.recalls.honda.com.
