Honda is recalling aftermarket full nose masks, part number 08P35-TA0-100 and 08P35-TA6-100 manufactured between August 9, 2007 through December 11, 2007. The accessory was designed specifically for model year 2008-2010 Honda Accord 4-door vehicles. It is possible for the nose mask material to interfere with part of the hood latch. If the hood has not been completely closed and the nose mask interferes with the secondary hood latch mechanism the hood may pop open while the vehicle being driven.
Honda is asking owners to please remove the nose mask immediately and call any authorized Honda dealer to make an appointment to return the nose mask and have it replaced free of charge. The safety recall began on March 2009. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
