    Recalls for 1997 Acura

    1997 ACURA CL
    NHTSA Campaign ID:ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH
    Manufacturer:AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.
    Manufacture Dates:08/20/1996 - 09/30/1997
    Potential Units Affected:1000000

    Defect Description:

    ON CERTAIN SEDANS, COUPES, HATCHBACKS, AND SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, ELECTRICAL CONTACTS IN THE IGNITION SWITCH CAN DEGRADE DUE TO THE HIGH ELECTRICAL CURRENT PASSING THROUGH THE SWITCH WHEN THE VEHICLE IS STARTED.

    Consequence:

    WORN CONTACTS COULD CAUSE THE ENGINE TO STALL WITHOUT WARNING, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN JUNE 14, 2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009 OR ACURA AT 1-800-382-2238.

    Manufacture Dates:08/20/1997 - 09/10/1997
    Potential Units Affected:124875

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. CERTAIN VEHICLES WERE MANUFACTURED WITH BALL JOINTS THAT CAN PREMATURELY WEAR OUT AND, IN THE WORSE CASE, THE BALL JOINT WOULD SEPARATE CAUSING THE FRONT SUSPENSION TO COLLAPSE.

    Consequence:

    THIS CONDITION WOULD RESULT IN VEHICLE DECELERATION AND A SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER. ALSO STEERING CONTROLLABILITY WOULD BE REDUCED.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT SUSPENSION LOWER BALL JOINTS.
    1997 ACURA RL
    NHTSA Campaign ID:POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
    Manufacturer:AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.
    Manufacture Dates:08/08/1996 - 08/29/1997
    Potential Units Affected:96518

    Defect Description:

    VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. A TRANSMISSION CASE BOLT CAN LOOSEN AND FALL OUT ALLOWING THE TRANSMISSION TO DISENGAGE FROM THE DIFFERENTIAL.

    Consequence:

    THE VEHICLE COULD LOSE POWER TO THE DRIVE WHEELS WITHOUT WARNING. ALSO, SHIFTING THE TRANSMISSION INTO THE PARK POSITION WOULD NOT LOCK THE WHEELS, AND A PARKED VEHICLE COULD MOVE UNEXPECTEDLY IF THE PARKING BRAKE IS NOT SET.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL INSTALL A REDESIGNED BOLT.
    1997 ACURA RL
    NHTSA Campaign ID:SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT
    Manufacturer:AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.
    Manufacture Dates:08/08/1996 - 09/01/1997
    Potential Units Affected:124875

    Defect Description:

    1997 ACURA SLX
    NHTSA Campaign ID:SUSPENSION
    Manufacturer:AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.
    Manufacture Dates:08/01/1996 - 11/10/1996
    Potential Units Affected:123

    Defect Description:

    THESE VEHICLES WERE MANUFACTURED WITHOUT A LOCK WASHER AND/OR SCREWS IN THE FRONT HUB.

    Consequence:

    THE BEARING ADJUSTMENT NUT CAN LOOSEN, RESULTING IN TOO MUCH FREE PLAY BETWEEN THE WHEEL AND AXLE. THE BEARING CAN SEIZE, CAUSING THE WHEEL TO LOCK AFFECTING VEHICLE DIRECTIONAL CONTROL INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE FRONT HUBS TO DETERMINE IF THE LOCK WASHER AND SCREWS WERE PROPERLY INSTALLED. IF NOT, THEY WILL MAKE THE NECESSARY REPAIRS.
    1997 ACURA SLX

    Potential Units Affected:873

    Defect Description:

    THE LEFT FRONT BRAKE LINES WERE INSTALLED IMPROPERLY AT THE ASSEMBLY LINE RESULTING IN INSUFFICIENT CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE BRAKE LINE AND AN UPPER CONTROL ARM OF THE SUSPENSION.

    Consequence:

    THE LINE CAN BE DAMAGED DURING VEHICLE OPERATION AND CAN RESULT IN BRAKE FLUID LEAKAGE, REDUCED BRAKE EFFECTIVENESS, AND INCREASED STOPPING DISTANCES.

    Action:

    DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE BRAKE LINE AND THE UPPER CONTROL ARM. IF THE CLEARANCE IS NOT ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS, THE BRAKE LINE WILL BE REPLACED.
