Honda recalls 2010 Accord and CR-V models due to engine stalling issues


Honda has announced a recall for certain 4-cylinder Accords and CR-Vs from the 2010 model year due to a potential failure of the engine wiring harness connector, which may cause intermittent spark firing or the engine to stall.

“The wire harness coupler could have been damaged during vehicle assembly, which can lead to engine stalling over time,” the Japanese automaker said in a statement, adding that it identified this problem through warranty repairs, and that no related accidents or injuries have been reported to date.

A notification to customers is anticipated to start at the begining of February, 2011. The recall affects 2,277 vehicles in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin.

Customers need to bring in their cars to any Honda dealership for an inspection, and it will replace the ignition wiring harness connector free of charge.
