Report: Honda to inspect 2011 Accord and CR-V models for possible oil leaks

Concerned about possible oil leaks in one of its popular K series engines, Honda is notifying 1,200 owners to visit their local dealer for an inspection. The affected engine is the 2.4-liter four-cylinder found under the hood of the 2011 Honda Accord (non-V6 models) and 2011 Honda CR-V (all models).

According to a service bulletin the automaker sent to its dealers on December 3, an engine part may have been cast improperly, thereby allowing engine oil to leak. All told, there are about 9,300 vehicles that may be subject to inspection. However, most of those 2011 models (5,000 Accords and 4,300 CR-Vs) are still unsold and in dealer inventory.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will issue a formal recall for items/failures it deems safety hazards – this does not fall under those guidelines. An oil leak of this nature is considered a repair, one that is covered under the automaker's new car warranty (no charge to the customer). Honda will begin notifying customers before the end of the month.
