Honda Accord is recalled due to potential fire risk in batteries.

Honda recently issued a worldwide recall for about 2.1 million Honda Accord midsize vehicles due to a risk of fire from faulty battery sensors.

The recall, which comprises about 1.15 million vehicles in the United States, affects vehicles equipped with 12-volt battery sensors made for the 2013 to 2016 model years.  A short in the battery sensors has been found to cause a fire. The car manufacturer stated that the battery may not be sealed properly and could allow moisture to seep into it.

The Japanese auto maker made the recall announcement in mid-July this year.

So far there are no known injuries or deaths associated with this problem, Honda said.

 News of this latest recall by Honda will affect many car owners who have already been grappling with the widespread recall affecting the car’s airbags made by Takata. These airbags may potentially explode and have been linked to 12 fatalities in the United States and several other worldwide.
