Honda recalls 820,000 Civic and Pilot models for headlights failure image

Honda announced it is recalling more than 820,000 Civic compact cars and Pilot SUVs because of a constructive fault that can lead to headlights failure.

The recall involves Civic models from the 2002 and 2003 model years and Pilots from 2004 and 2005.

According to Honda, wires connecting a switch that controls the headlights and turn signals can overheat and melt, leaving the cars without low-beam headlights. So far, there haven’t been reports of crashes or injuries due to this issue.

Honda announced it will fix the wiring for free. The carmaker already began sending letters to owners at the end of September. There was a similar recall in March which affected 550,000 CR-V compact SUVs from the 2002 through 2004 model years and Pilots from 2003.

Owners in the United States can contact Honda at (800) 999-1009 with questions.
