Honda is recalling 600,000 Accord mid-size cars in the U.S. and Canada to fix a faulty power steering hose that can leak fluid and cause a fire.

The recall affects Accords with V-6 engines from the 2003 through 2007 model years.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the Accord’s power steering hose can deteriorate with prolonged exposure to engine heat.

The agency says the hoses can crack and leak, possibly causing a fire or loss of power-assisted steering.

Honda will replace the hoses for free, but it won’t have the parts available until early next year.

Any owner who suspects a leak should take their car to a dealer for inspection, Honda spokesman Ed Miller said Monday.
