Honda is recalling approximately 572,000 vehicles model-year 2003-2007 Accord V6 vehicles in the United States because of a faulty power steering hose that can leak fluid and eventually cause a fire.
Honda said, "Over time, exposure to high under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate and develop a fluid leak. Leaking power steering fluid could lead to loss of power steering assistance or, if it leaks onto a catalytic converter, it may result in smoke, or in the worst case, fire".
Honda said that owner's who suspects a leak should take their car to a dealer for inspection.
