As per the details available, Honda found that the hose pipe of the steering liquid might leak and the steering fluid could fall upon the hot engine parts leading to fire or smoke. This could damage the other parts and could lead to an accident. Though there has been only one incident of fire due to this reason but taking a precautionary measure, the car maker decided to replace the faulty hose pipes with that of new ones so that the fuel leak could be averted. The US agency National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given confirmation of Honda’s stand of a recall and the owners will be informed about it starting October 26.
