Honda has announced that it will recall about 10,800 Accord sedans and Pilot utility vehicles for a potential issue with the front suspension.

According to the automaker, both the spindle nuts on the front axles of both models, plus the damper attachment bracket bolts on the Pilot might cause the front suspension to fail. The problem is due to a machinery issue (a flaw with assembly software), and may affect a very small number of the vehicles recalled.

All of the affected vehicles—2010 and 2011 Honda Accord and 2011 Honda Pilot models—were assembled at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA).

Owners of models affected by the recall will be receiving a notice in the next several weeks, and those who do are encouraged to bring their vehicle to a delaership, where the affected parts will be checked and potentially replaced.

Accord and Pilot owners can go to or call 800-999-1009, option 4, to see if their vehicle is affected.
