Honda is recalling nearly 250,000 vehicles due to a potentially deadly engine-related issue, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.
In an announcement made this week, traffic safety administration officials said due to a manufacturing error, the connecting rod bearing in the engine may “wear and seize,” potentially damaging it.
Damaged engines may stall or run improperly while a person is driving the vehicle, increasing the risk of a fire, injury or crash, the NHTSA said.
