Honda Announces Massive Recall Of 1.2Million Accords

Honda has announced they are recalling 1.2 million Accords sold in the U.S. Here is the information you need including the years of the Honda Accords included in the recall and why they’re being recalled.

Honda says the problem is with the Accord’s battery sensor which can short out and potentially cause a fire. They say four fires have been reported to date, but thankfully no injuries.

So far, all of the fires reported to Honda in in the U.S. have been from states where salt is used to clear roads in the winter. Obviously here in Louisiana, road salt isn’t anything we deal with, but if your call is included in the recall you should still bring to your Honda dealership to have it checked and fixed.

The Honda Accords included in the recall are vehicles from 2013 through 2016 model years.

From WWLTV.com

The company says the sensors on the negative terminal of the battery aren’t properly sealed from moisture. Road salt can get in and cause corrosion and an electrical short. A shorted sensor can heat up and possibly catch fire
