What’s the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall began on Feb. 1, 2021, and affects 2013-2015 Honda Accord vehicles equipped with a 4-cylinder engine and a continuously-variable transmission that were originally sold, or ever registered, in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
These Honda Accords were assembled with a lubricant that may have degraded the drive shafts’ protective coating, making the shaft more likely to be damaged by road salt or other contaminants, potentially causing it to break.
“A broken drive shaft may cause a sudden loss of drive power,” NHTSA said. “The vehicle could also roll away if the parking brake has not been applied before the vehicle has been exited.”
If you purchased an Accord that is affected by this recall, you should stop driving it and contact your local Honda dealer for a free inspection and, if necessary, driveshaft replacement.
