Honda has announced a recall for 189 Acura TLX vehicles that have incorrect labels and tires that can fail if the car is loaded according to the printed specifications.

The automaker is not aware of any crashes or injuries connected with the recall, which affects certain 2015 Acura TLX vehicles equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive.

"If the vehicle is loaded to the specifications listed on the label, tire failure may result, increasing the risk of a crash," the NHTSA said in a statement quoted by Edmunds.com.

For the recall, which is scheduled to start Oct. 21, dealers will install labels with the correct gross vehicle weight rating and gross axle weight rating specifications.

Acura will begin notifying customers by mail later this month, the automaker said in a statement. Owners can also find more information by visiting recalls.acura.com or by calling 1-800-382-2238 and selecting option 4.

The new luxury Acura TLX sedan is priced at $31,890 in base trim, which includes $895 in destination fees.
