Honda Recalls Nearly 250,000 Vehicles Because Bearing Can Fail And Cause Engines To Run Poorly Or Stall

DETROIT (AP) — Honda is recalling nearly 250,000 vehicles in the U.S. because bearings can fail, causing the engines to stall and increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall covers certain 2018 and 2019 Honda Pilot SUVs and Odyssey minivans, and some 2017 and 2019 Ridgeline pickup trucks.

Also affected are certain 2015 to 2020 Acura TLX cars and 2016 to 2020 Acura MDX SUVs.

Honda says in documents posted Friday by U.S. safety regulators that connecting rod bearings in the engine can wear and seize due to a manufacturing error, damaging the engines.

The engines could stall while being driven, increasing the risk of a fire or crash.

The automaker says in documents that it has no reports of injuries.

Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the engines if needed.
