Honda Canada issued a voluntary recall on 29,947 Honda Accord V6 sedans from the 2003 to 2007 model years.

In some cases, the power steering hose could crack and leak due to prolonged exposure to high heat. Leaking power steering fluid could lead to a loss of power steering assistance or, if it leaks onto a catalytic converter, it may result in smoke or a fire.

In a statement released by the company on Monday, we've learned that the updated power steering hose necessary to complete final repair won't be available until early 2013. Owners of affected Accords will soon receive an initial notification by mail informing them of this issue.

However, if they believe that their Accord is exhibiting symptoms potentially related to a power steering hose leak, owners should take their vehicle to their local Honda dealer for inspection and, if necessary, interim repair.
