MARKHAM, ON (May 17, 2012) – Acura will voluntarily recall approximately 4,266 model-year 2007-2008 TL sedans in Canada to replace the power steering hose. Over time, the power steering hose in affected vehicles may deteriorate and develop a fluid leak. A power steering fluid leak could lead to a loss of power steering assist. Power steering fluid leaking onto a hot catalytic convertor may generate smoke or, in the worst case, lead to an under-hood fire. No accidents, injuries or fires related to this issue have been reported.
Acura is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Acura. Mailed notification to customers will begin in June 2012. In addition to contacting customers by mail, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair starting 17th May by going on-line to www.acura.ca/recalls or by calling Acura Canada Client Services at (888) 9ACURA9.
