Honda is recalling 573,000 Accord midsize cars in the U.S. to fix a defective power steering hose that can leak fluid and catch fire. The recall affects Accords from the 2003 through 2007 model years that are equipped with V-6 engines. Honda says one fire was reported but no injuries. The company is adding the Accords to a May recall of the Acura TL midsize luxury car. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the hoses can deteriorate prematurely, causing cracks and leaks.
