Acura Recalling TSX Sedans For Corrosion

TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) â¿¿ Honda Motor Co.'s luxury Acura brand is recalling 76,000 TSX sedans in 22 cold-weather states because corrosion could cause them to stall.

TSX sedans from the 2004 through 2008 model years are included in the recall.

Acura says that in places where road salt is heavily used, salt and water can saturate the carpet under the dashboard that covers the vehicle's electrical control unit. Salty water can corrode the metal case that houses the electrical unit. If that corrosion damages the wiring in the unit, the vehicle may stall.

Acura says no crashes or injuries related to the problem have been reported.

Acura will notify owners about the recall next month. The company will install a water-resistant cover over the electrical unit at no charge.
