The power-steering hose may deteriorate over time, the company said, and fluid leaks can develop. The fluid leak can lead to loss of steering performance, and could potentially leak into the catalytic converter, causing smoke or fire as a result, the company said.
No crashes, injuries or fires have been reported due to the issue, according to Acura.
