DETROIT — Honda Motor Co. is recalling 19,197 of its model year 2014 Acura MDX luxury sport utility vehicles in the United States because of potential problems with propeller shafts, the company and U.S. regulators said Friday.
Honda said up to four bolts that attach a propeller shaft to a universal joint may not have been tightened properly and over time could loosen and fall out, causing the shaft to detach. This could damage the vehicle and cause a crash.
Honda said it had received no consumer complaints on the issue and no reports of crashes or injuries related to it.
