The 2014-2015 Accord four-cylinder and the 2015 CR-V are affected by the problem. During assembly of these vehicles, an automated system that verifies connecting rod bolt torque may not have identified improperly torqued bolts. If one of these bolts does come loose, it can lead to engine damage and stalling.
No collisions or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue, which was discovered through a warranty claim.
Honda will replace the engine short block on all of the 137 affected vehicles, free of charge.
