Safety Recall: 2013-2015 Honda Accord Driveshaft Failure

December 23, 2020
Version 3


Year Model Trim Level VIN Range
2013-15 Accord CVT models only Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.



The BACKGROUND was revised to provide an update on affected VIN population.



Due to improper manufacturing, the paint on the driveshaft may peel and chip over time, exposing the bare metal and potentially causing it to corrode. A corroded driveshaft can potentially break during high torque conditions rendering the vehicle unmovable, or allow the vehicle to roll while in Park, which can increase the potential of a crash or injury.

As of December 22, 2020 a full inspection and repair service bulletin (20-125 Safety Recall: 2013-15 Accord Driveshaft Inspection) was released for the affected VIN population. All affected VINs that showed OPEN in the iN VIN status inquiry for 20-119 will now show OPEN for 20-125 instead. Go to service bulletin 20-125 Safety Recall: 2013-15 Accord Driveshaft Inspection to repair the vehicle.

All unaffected VINs have been marked closed (C) for service bulletin 20-119 in the iN VIN status inquiry as of December 17, 2020 when the affected VINs were determined. Unaffected VINs in your dealer inventory are no longer on STOP SALE. Make sure to notify any customers of unaffected vehicles who were previously told their vehicle may be subject to this safety recall.
