Acura will voluntarily recall approximately 76,000 model-year 2004-2008 TSX sedans in 22 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.

The automaker said Thursday that the recall will be conducted to install a water-resistant cover over the Electronic Control Unit at no cost to the customer.

Acura said that in cold-weather states where road salt is heavily used to de-ice roads, it is possible for road salt and water from drivers' shoes to saturate the carpet under the vehicle dashboard that covers the metal case containing the ECU.

If water containing road salt comes in contact with the metal ECU case, corrosion can form, which, according to Acura, can damage the ECU itself and potentially result in a vehicle stalling.

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
