ALERT: Honda Recalls 573,000 Accords To Fix Faulty Hoses

DETROIT (AP) - Honda is recalling 573,000 Accord midsize cars in the U.S. to fix a defective power steering hose that can leak fluid and catch fire.
    
The recall affects Accords from the 2003 through 2007 model years that are equipped with V-6 engines. Honda says one fire was reported but no injuries.
    
The company is adding the Accords to a May recall of the Acura TL midsize luxury car.
    
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the hoses can deteriorate prematurely, causing cracks and leaks.
    
The company will replace the hoses for free, but it won't have the parts available until early in 2013. Any owner who suspects a leak should take their car to a dealer.
    
The Accord is the nation's second-best selling car, beaten only by the Toyota Camry
