Among the sixty-three (63) recalls the NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

Logo - Dorman Products, Inc.Dorman Products, Inc. (“Dorman”), a Colmar, Pennsylvania establishment, has recalled an estimated 3,744 Accelerator Pedal Assemblies part numbers 699-114 and 825-5029-1, sold as replacement parts for 2003-2006 Acura MDX, 2004-2008 Acura TL and TSX, 2003-2007 Honda Accord, 2005-2006 Honda CR-V, 2007-2011 Honda Element, 2005-2008 Honda Pilot and 2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States

US NHTSA Safety Notification 19E068000 reports the rotating portion of the accelerator pedal assembly may bind in the recalled accessories. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 124, “Accelerator Control Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, if the accelerator pedal binds, the engine may not quickly return to idle after the pedal is no longer pressed, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dorman will notify registered owners, and qualified service facilities will replace the affected accelerator pedal assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by December 2019. Owners may contact Dorman customer service at 1-800-523-2492, using option 5, during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Dorman’s designation for this recall is AS1019XXXX.
