The problem deals with a manufacturing error at Honda’s Alabama plant where some Accord and Pilots are built. At this plant, the front suspension wasn’t secured to the front axle correctly; the flaw could cause potential suspension failures.
Honda will notify owners of the affected vehicles this week. Honda dealerships will inspect the suspension and replace the spindle nuts and the front dampers and attachment bracket bolts if necessary, free of charge. Honda owners can go to www.recalls.honda.com or call (800) 999-1009, and select option 4.
