WASHINGTON (AP) - Honda Motor Co. is recalling about 10,800 Accord sedans and Pilot sport utility vehicles to prevent possible front suspension failure.
     
The Japanese automaker says the recall covers late model year 2010-2011 Accord sedans and 2011 Pilot SUVs in the United States.
     
Honda says problems with the machinery used to tighten spindle nuts on the front axles on both vehicles could cause the front suspension to fail.
     
The company says a flaw in the software for the equipment used in the assembly process was discovered at its plant in Alabama.
     
Honda says it expects to notify owners this week and the repairs will be conducted at dealerships.
