Statement by Acura Regarding Electronic Control Unit Corrosion Recall: 2004-2008 Acura TSX

Statement by Acura Regarding Electronic Control Unit Corrosion Recall: 
2004-2008 Acura TSX 
MARKHAM, ON, March 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Acura will voluntarily recall 
approximately 17,000 model-year 2004-2008 TSX sedans in Canada to install a 
water resistant cover over the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). In cold-weather 
areas where road salt is also heavily used, it is possible for melted snow 
from drivers' footwear to saturate the carpet that covers the ECU under the 
vehicle dashboard. When water containing road salt comes in contact with the 
metal ECU case, corrosion can form, which, over time, can lead to vehicles 
stalling and not restarting. No crashes or injuries have been reported related 
to this issue. 
Acura is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles 
to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive 
notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notifications to customers are 
expected to be sent in April 2013. In addition to contacting customers by 
mail, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles 
require inspection by going on-line to www.acura.ca/recalls or by calling 
(888) 9ACURA9.
