2019 Honda CR-V: Recall Alert

2019 Honda CR-V: Recall Alert


Vehicles Affected: Approximately 118,600 model-year 2019 Honda CR-V SUVs

The Problem: The metal core of the steering wheel may have burrs that can damage harnesses housed within the steering wheel. A damaged harness could potentially disable the driver’s airbag or cause it to deploy without warning, increasing the risk of injury and a crash.

 The Fix: Dealers will install a protective cover on the steering wheel core, and replace the clockspring and harnesses within, free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners July 8. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
