Honda Motor Co. Ltd. is recalling 2010 and 2011 year model Accord V-6 and Pilot vehicles because of a faulty axle pin and spindle nuts that could cause car accidents.
Nearly 10,823 Accord V-6 vehicles for the 2010 and 2011 model year as well as 2011 Pilot vehicles have rear axle pins that may not have been tightened enough during assembly, due to a manufacture programing error. The loose bolts could increase the risk of steering loss and cause excess noise, according to news reports. The spindle nuts may also be loose on some of the vehicles, which could cause steering loss in the front suspension collapses, according to news reports .
The recall comes as the same day as GM recalled nearly 96,000 Cadillac CTS cars because of a faulty sensor that could disable the front passenger airbag.
GM said there have not been any reports of injuries or car accidents related to either recall.
As a South Carolina car accident attorney , I’m glad GM caught this issue before any personal injuries were reported. I urge consumers who own a recalled GM vehicle to pay close attention to this recall. Consumers should be notified by mail by GM when their vehicles can be taken in for a free repair. These problems should be fixed as soon as possible to prevent possible car accidents and injuries that could occur.
