2000 Honda Accord Recall
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has announced the recall of certain Honda
Accord model year 2000 vehicles because the rear suspension lower arms and/or control arms
could break due to improper welding, on certain vehicles. Vehicle handling and control
would be reduced, increasing the risk of loss of control and a crash.
19,540 vehicles manufactured between
January - February 2000 are affected by this recall.
Dealers will inspect and replace the rear
suspension lower arms or control arms if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that
owner notification began July 7, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
