The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for the CR-V SUVs and for the Acura ILX small luxury cars because of a problem with the doors.
Bad news for Honda these days which is getting in line with other car manufacturers in its United States auto market, but this isn’t good news as it may sound.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 166,000 units of the 2012 model year Honda CR-V SUVs and 6,200 units of the 2013 Acura ILX small luxury cars will have to be taken back to the dealerships by their owners because of a problem with the vehicles’ doors, which may not close.
The NHTSA is saying that if the inside passenger or driver door handles will be used at the same time as manual door locks or power, the inner door latch may not work and the doors may not close.
The car company says that no crashes or injuries have been related to this problem yet but owners of the above mentioned models are encouraged to contact their local dealership. Owners of the 2012 Honda CR-V and the 2013 Acura ILX will be notified by the company in mid-August and the recall should begin in the same month.
