Honda Accord V6 models from 2003 to 2007 are being recalled to fix a defective power steering hose that can leak fluid and catch on fire.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the power steering hoses can deteriorate prematurely, causing cracks and leaks. Honda will be replacing the hoses for free on affected vehicles, but won’t have the parts to do so until early next year.

The Japanese automaker reports that there has been one fire related to the recall, but no injuries have been associated with it.

Any owners that suspect that they may have a leak can take their vehicle to a dealership.

This recall follows the same issue in 2007 and 2008 Acura TL sedans.
