On March 9, American Honda announced that it will conduct a recall (repaired free-of-charge) for their Accord and CR-V.
This recall is due to a defect to its inline 4-cylinder gasoline engine. According to American Honda, the connecting rod may not have been installed properly, and this could damage and/or shut down the engine if the screws were to loosen.
The recall applies to a total of 137 units of 2014-2015 models that were sold in the US.
American Honda will be contacting the owners of these vehicles. The affected vehicles will undergo inspections at Hondaâ€™s dealerships and the engine block will be replaced if necessary.
