What are the defects?
Prolonged high under-bonnet temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate prematurely and may cause the hose to crack and leak power steering fluid.
What are the hazards?
Power steering fluid leaking onto a hot exhaust may generate smoke and a burning smell, and could potentially result in an under-bonnet fire.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail.
Owners are advised to contact their authorised Honda Dealership to have the power steering feed hose replaced with an improved component.
