Toyota will be heaving a huge sigh of relief knowing that other famous brands will also recall some of their vehicles. Joining the bandwagon, Porsche is going to recall 11,324 Panameras (2010 models) as the automobile manufacturer discovered a seat belt related flaw during internal testing. Porsche detailed that accelerating and reversing repeatedly could cause the seat-belt to release. While this is no major problem, Porsche intends to fix the Panameras when they are taken to a dealership for scheduled maintenance. I think we can start making bets to find out who’s next in the recall saga. Who do you think they are?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a recall has been issued by Honda for approximately 43,000 Acura RL sedan, 2005-2008 models, because of the high temperatures created by the V6 engine that affects the power steering hose and could lead to fluid leaks onto th catalytic converter. These things could cause fire and I am sure you wouldn’t want something like that to happen.
Though nothing bad happened so far, Honda is issuing a recall so you’d better go ask your local dealer if they know anything or call Honda directly before they send it to your mailbox.
