Honda Motor Co. is recalling 93,900 cars, SUV/crossovers, minivans and pickup trucks in the U.S. to replace engine timing belts that could shred.

The campaign targets 2018-2019 model Acura MDX crossovers, TLX small and RLX luxury sedans; and Honda Odyssey minivans, Pilot crossovers (pictured) and Ridgeline pickups.

All affected vehicles are equipped with 3.5-liter V-6 engines with timing belts whose teeth could break away. The result would alter engine valve timing, making the engine run roughly or stall.

Dealers will replace the belts as needed, along with any damaged engine components. Honda plans to begin the recall in June.
