Honda Recalling 2002-2006-MY CR-V Compact SUVs

October 09, 2012

WASHINGTON – American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 268,655 2002-2006 model-year Honda CR-V vehicles because their driver-side power window switch may fail or melt, thus posing an overheating or fire risk, according to the NHTSA.

The NHTSA said the risk of a switch failure or fire is present even if the vehicle isn’t in use. As a precaution, the agency advised vehicle owners to park outside until the recall repair has been performed. 

Honda dealers will inspect and repair the switches, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin the first week of November.

The recall covers 2002-2006 model year CR-V vehicles manufactured from Feb. 19, 2002 through July 28, 2006.

Vehicle owners can reach Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
