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
