Honda Motor Co.’s luxury Acura brand has recalled 76,000 TSX sedans in America because corrosion could cause them to stall in cold weather. TSX sedans from the 2004 through 2008 model years are included in the recall. Acura says that in places where road salt is heavily used, salt and water can saturate the carpet under the dashboard that covers the vehicle’s electrical control unit. Salty water can corrode the metal case that houses the electrical unit. If that corrosion damages the wiring in the unit, the vehicle may stall. Acura says no crashes or injuries related to the problem have been reported. Acura will notify owners about the recall this month. The company will install a water-resistant cover over the electrical unit at no charge.
