California, USAHonda recalls voluntarily about 10,800 vehicles of Accord 2010-2011 models and Pilot 2011 models that were sold in the US, due to the potential failure of suspension.

According to Honda’s official announcement dated December 22, 2010, the machinery which was used to tighten the spindle nuts on the front axles of both vehicles has a potential problem.

On the other hand, a potential problem was also seen on the damper attachment bracket bolts for the Pilot vehicle that may cause the front suspension of these vehicles to fail, but Honda said only a few cars might have been affected.

Apparently, a flaw in the software for the equipment used for this assembly process was reported to be realized at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC (HMA) only, and other production plants are not affected.

Meanwhile, Honda also said that a notification through mail will be send to all affected customers starting December 23, 2010, and dealers will replace spindle nuts for both models and front damper attachment bracket bolts for the Pilot vehicle, if necessary.

Potentially affected customers are also being advised to call Honda at (800) 999-1009 and select option 4, or to visit
