Honda Issues Recall of Over 1.4 Million Vehicles
Honda has announce they are recalling over 1.4 million vehicles in the U.S. to repair window switches that can overheat, drive shafts that can break and a software flaw.
The software recall includes:
737,000 Honda Accords from 2018 to 2020 and Honda Insights from 2019 and 2020.
A control computer containing a programming flaw can cause the rear camera, turn signals and windshield wipers to malfunction. The automaker said Wed, 12/16 that owners will be notified in January when to take their vehicles in for repairs,
Two drive shaft recalls cover:
430,000 Honda Civic Hybrids from 2012
The 2007 through 2014 Honda Fit
The 2013 through 2015 Acura ILX
The 2013 through 2015 Honda Accord
The vehicles are sold in numerous states where salt is used to clear roads in the winter and can cause the drive shafts to break due to corrosion. Owners will get an initial notification in February and will be told later when to go to a dealer.
The power-window switch recall includes:
About 268,000 Honda CR-Vs from 2002 through 2006
This is actually the second recall for the same issue. Water can get into an open driver's window and cause an electrical short, possibly igniting a fire. The cars were recalled starting in October of 2012, but the repairs didn't work. Honda advised owners to take the SUVs in for repairs as soon as they get a recall notice. Those will be mailed starting in late January.
