Acura announced the withdrawal of the sport model NSXSeptember 9, 2018
Fortunately, at the moment there is no information that accidents or injuries have occurred due to faulty Japanese sports coupe Acura NSX. It is reported that all work to eliminate the found faults will be fully carried out at the expense of the company.
The press service of the Japanese automaker of premium cars announced the simultaneous launch of two service companies that deal with a sports car NSX. The reason for these responses was a possible malfunction in the fuel tanks, as well as inadequate operation of the central stop lamp. Almost immediately after the published press release, representatives of the Japanese automaker reported that at this time it is not known about the cases in which the faulty Acura NSX caused any injuries.
It is reported that employees of Acura in the near future will contact the owners of potentially faulty copies of the model NSX and warn them of a possible malfunction, and also notify them about the need to visit the nearest authorized service center Acura. In the event that it will not be possible to contact the owners of the unsuccessful Acura NSX, they will receive email notifications.
According to official data, in 793 copies of the sports coupe Acura NSX 2018 model years, which were sold in the US, the malfunction may consist in the malfunction of the central stop lamp, resulting in a short circuit. This in turn can lead to an explosion of the fuse and, ultimately, the deactivation of all brake lights of the car. And without that it is clear that non-working brake lights can cause accidents. Press service Acura said that in the service centers of the brand will be replaced free of charge central stoplight.
The cause of another recall was the faulty fuel tanks: in those copies of the NSX coupe that were produced in 2017-2018, it is necessary to replace the left and right fuel tanks. Acura said that the pipes that connect the right and left fuel tanks to each other are not properly installed, which in turn can lead to fuel leakage. And this can lead to a fire. In this case, all troubleshooting work will also be done at the expense of the company.
