Recall Alert: Honda Recalls Nearly 53,000 Acura TL Sedans In US

Posted Thursday, May 17, 2012 --- 7:00 a.m.

DETROIT (AP) -- Honda says it's recalling nearly 53,000 Acura TL sedans in the U.S. to fix a problem with power steering hoses.

The hoses can deteriorate over time and leak fluid. That can cause the cars to lose power steering or even cause a fire.

The sedans are from the 2007 and 2008 model years. Honda says there have been no reported crashes, injuries or fires related to the problem.

Honda Motor Co. recalled 273,000 TLs in in 2008 for a similar problem. They were from the 2004 through 2008 model years.

Owners will get letters in mid-June telling them to take their cars to an Acura dealer.
