The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for the CR-V crossover because of a problem with the vehicle’s handling.
After the Honda CR-V had to be taken back to the dealers in China because of an issue with its horn just earlier this month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has just announced that the SUV has a problem in the United States of America too, with its handling. According to the NHTSA, a potential problem with its welding, when it was manufactured, could lead to impaired vehicle handling in the Honda CR-V, and if ignored, the part can even break at the weld and the vehicle’s handling could be severely affected, increasing the risk of a crash.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is saying that a total of 1,316 units of the Honda CR-V, “wearing” the 2006 model year in their names, will have to be taken back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the welding fixed. Honda said that it didn’t receive any reports of crashes or injuries related to this issue. Owners of the above mentioned model will have to take a trip back to the dealers in mid-April, when the recall is expected to begin. Dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the parts free of charge, if needed.
