1.2 million Accords face fire risk from faulty battery sensors — Honda recall

2018 Honda Accord Touring Front

Honda axed the Ford Mondeo rival from the British market in 2015, citing declining market trends as the reason for its withdrawal.

Due to the large size of the recall, Honda said dealers would initially adopt a temporary fix by applying an adhesive to prevent moisture intrusion, and then later replace the sensor.

Powering the Accord will be the 2.0-litre, turbo-petrol engine from the Civic Type R capable of producing up to 252hp power and 369Nm of torque.

Honda introduced a redesigned battery sensor in June 2016.

In the cabin, Honda promises a more premium interior design, feel and finish, while new tech appears as well. This is down to new lighter body structure utilising additional ultra-high-strength steel, and a new lighter chassis with an all-aluminium front subframe. Its safety features include a full suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies that come as standard equipment and includes Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and new Traffic Sign Recognition.

Slight growth in house prices in July: Rightmove
The Bank of England is also debating whether to raise interest rates to keep inflation in check. The annual rate of price gains was nearly 8 per cent in May a year ago .

Some consumers were anxious that the same issue would affect the new HOnda Accord but according to Honda, the battery sensor has been redesigned back in June 2016 which means the newer model should not have the same issue. The infotainment system gets both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options.

Under the bonnet, USA buyers get a total of three powertrain options.

The company says its new 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is actually more powerful than the previous V-6, generating 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.

The 2018 Honda Accord has been unveiled in the United States, making its global debut in the automotive market. A CVT gearbox and a ten-speed automatic are available, but Honda offers a six-speed manual too. Have your say in the comments.
