According to CNN Honda is calling back nearly 250,000 vehicles because of a goof-up in manufacturing that could mess up the engines. Better get that checked out!
So, here’s the deal: Honda just issued a recall notice because of a glitch in the engines of certain Acura and Honda models. Apparently, there’s an issue with the connecting rod bearing that could mess up the engine, making it run weird or even stall while you’re driving. And that’s not good because it could lead to a fire, a crash, or worse—injury.
The models affected include the 2015-2020 Acura TLX, the 2016-2020 MDX, the 2018 and 2019 Honda Odysseys, the 2016, 2018, and 2019 Pilots, and Ridgelines made between 2017 and 2019. If you’re driving one of these, you might want to pay attention.
Believe it or not, this is Honda’s 14th recall this year, and it’s a pretty big deal—number five on the list of their largest recalls. In 2023 alone, they’ve had to recall more than three million vehicles. Yikes!
But hey, there’s a silver lining. If you’re affected, Honda will shoot you a letter in early January, and the good news is they’re offering free inspections, repairs, and engine replacements at their dealerships. So, keep an eye on your mailbox, and let’s get those engines sorted out!
