Next month Honda (HMC) will begin notifying owners about a Acura recall.
On Monday, the Japanese auto giant said that 7,387 RLX sedans in the U.S. and 364 vehicles in Canada were affected by the Acura recall. HMC says that the Acura recall was prompted by rear suspension bolts that could become loose, causing a potentially dangerous misalignment of the sedans’ suspension system, Reuters notes.
Owners affected by the Acura recall will receive letters from Honda in January. According to Honda, there have been no reports of injuries or automobile crashes linked to the problem cited in the Acura recall. Only 2014 RLX sedans are involved in the Acura recall. HMC stock had been in an upward trend since September.
In September, HMC issued a recall for 342,000 Odyssey minivans from the model years 2003 and 2004 sold in North America.
The company had recalled more than 200,000 SUVs and minivans that could unexpectedly shift out of park even if the driver didn’t have the brake engaged in very cold weather.
HMC stock fell modestly in Monday morning trading.
