Acura has issued a voluntarily recall on all 2007 and 2008 TL sedans due to a potential fluid leak caused by worn out power steering hoses.

Acura says there are some 52,615 cars affected by the recall in the U.S. alone.

According to the automaker the power steering hoses on the affected cars may have deteriorated over time, causing a fluid leak to develop.

Leaking power steering fluid could lead to loss of power steering assistance. Furthermore, if the fluid leaks onto a catalytic converter or other parts of the exhaust system it may result in smoke or, in the worst case, fire.

Acura is making the announcement to encourage owners to take their cars to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of the recall directly from the automaker. Mailed notification to customers will begin in June.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is yet to list the latest recall on its website but concerned TL owners can gather more information by visiting the webpage www.recalls.acura.com or by contacting Acura on (800) 382-2238 and selecting option 4.

So far, no crashes, injuries or fires have been reported related to this issue.
