Honda announced that over 550,000 CR-V’s and Pilot’s will be recalled due to failing low-beam headlights.
In 2011, Honda recalled more vehicles than any other U.S. auto manufacturer, and it seems as though 2012 will be no different. Only three months into the new year, this recall comes as the latest of over a half-dozen safety-related actions Honda has been forced to make.
There reportedly isn’t enough slack in the wiring, and routine vehicle use can lead to the wire snapping, in the 2002-2004 models of the CR-V, as well as the 2003 model Pilot. No crashes or injuries have been reported as a result of this defect, and this defect only affects the low-level beams.
Owners will get recall notices via the mail in early April, and Honda is also asking owners to stop by their local dealers so they can inspect the vehicles, and replace the wiring, if necessary.
