A flaw with Acura’s TSX ranging from model years 2004 to 2008 is causing a recall in Canada and could reach the U.S.

Almost 17,000 of the sedans are being recalled in areas where de-icing chemicals and salt are used because the mixture could cause damage to the base of the car’s engine control unit according to Transport Canada.

That corrosion damage could cause the engine to stall. Acura dealers will install a waterproof cover over the ECU and any damaged units will be replaced.

There isn’t currently a defect investigation open with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but given the general nature of the problem it would make sense if it were announced for parts of the U.S. too.
