According to USA Today, Honda has announced that it is recalling 2,277 Accord and CR-V models for an electrical coupling that may have been damaged while the engine was being installed in the vehicles. If this is the case, the engine could stall during normal operation. The condition impacts certain 2010 Accord and CR-V models, and as of right now, no injuries or accidents have been reported due to the problem. Still, Honda says that it's important for owners who are notified of the recall to take their vehicles in for inspection. Honda is expected to repair or replace the connector free of charge.

Owners of impacted vehicles can look for letters informing them of the recall in February. Repairs are slated to begin shortly thereafter. Hit the jump to see the NHTSA recall announcement.

      This just shows how much cost cutting Honda did (along with Toyota) over the years.

      I just think it's important to note that the affected Accords are 2010 models with the 2.4 L I4 engine, the pictures here show a 2011 model with the optional 3.5 L V6.

      I just want to offer my services to Autoblog to help them have a more professional website. I'll be happy to read and correct all incoming articles before they're sent to the website. Spelling, content, and grammar MATTER, otherwise you get the reputation of being "interesting, but unprofessional". If I want to see interesting but unprofessional car content, I'll watch bad videos of teens powersliding in a parking lot on YouTube. Oh wait a minute, I already do that.
