If you own an Acura it might be time to visit the shop. AS of May 2012 Acura is recalling nearly 53,000 TL models from 2007 and 2008. At issue is a faulty power steering hose that that automaker says “could lead to a loss of power steering assistance or, if it leaks onto a catalytic converter it may result in smoke, or in the worst case, fire.” The company is quick to point out, however, that there have been no such problems. Acura will be sending notifications to affected owners next month and will fix the problem free of charge.
