The newest Acura model is already being recalled.

The Japanese automaker is recalling its all-new 2015 TLX due to incorrect information on the safety certification label. The recall affects nearly 200 units that were manufactured between August 26 and September 20 and are equipped with all-wheel drive. According to the recall notice, incorrect values for the gross vehicle weight rating and gross axle weight rating, front and rear, may have been printed on the label.

Though it’s unlikely, loading the vehicle to the specifications listed on the label, tire failure could result increasing the risk of a crash. Honda will begin notifying affected owners starting Tuesday and dealers will affix a new label for free.
