Honda has announced another round of recalls for the 2011 Accord. Both the coupe and sedan, along with the 2011 Pilot, have been discovered to be susceptible to a failure in the front suspension. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, the bolts that attach the front dampers to the suspension may not have been properly tightened.

In addition, the spindle nuts on the Pilot and Accord V6 may be loose as well, and both issues could cause a loss of steering. NHTSA says that 10,823 units are impacted by the recall. That number joins the 9,300 Accord and CR-V models that are currently being investigated for possible oil leaks due to an improperly cast portion of the engine.

According to USA Today, the newest problem is due to a malfunction in the software that controls the machines that tighten bolts at the factory. Dealers will inspect and replace the damper bolts and spindle nuts if necessary free of charge, and owners can expect to be notified as soon as December 23, 2010. Hit the jump to have a look at the recall notice for yourself.

Recalls

Altho this does not help Honda's reputation for reliability, this is still pretty small compared to the recall-fest that has been going on since the whole Toyota thing.

I got kinda tired of posting all the recalls here bc this forum started to look like recall central, so I been focusing mainly on Honda/Acura products.

Just the past 2 weeks:

wow..I agree that this is a simpler recall than the others listed..but this is is getting out of hand. Car prices are going up and quality is going down the shitter.

The only thing I'm happy about is that these are voluntary recalls.
