Similar to Toyota problems previously but at least knowledge is better than not to know about possible dangerous issues.

good on Honda for recalling with only one fire incedent. Other companies might wait til 100's of disasters have happened.

At least Honda is doing the right thing. The question is, who & where is manufacturing the faulty hoses? Honda or a subcontractor?

OLD....OLD News.
For such a small recall. Don't most Accords come with 4 cylinder motors?
Consider that 2013 Fusions and Malibus have no V6.

That's what happens when you buy a vehicle from a company headquartered in Japan. Buy American!
