The Problem: The timing belt teeth may separate from the belt. Teeth separating from the timing belt could result in an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace any affected timing belt. Vehicles receiving a replacement timing belt will also have the engine inspected and any damaged components will be replaced. All repairs will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Acura manufacturer Honda will begin notifying owners June 1. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
