Honda has issued a global recall of approximately 53,937 hybrid CR-V vehicles, due to a defect that could potentially lead to an electrical problem that could result in a fire. The recall covers certain model CR-V Hybrid vehicles from the 2021 and 2022 model years. The defect lies in the hybrid electric unit, which could become damaged due to an issue with the electrical wiring. Honda warns this could cause the electric unit to short-circuit, leading to an electrical system spike and possible fire. Honda issued the recall after discovering the issue in Japan and the United States. The automaker has asked customers to take their vehicle to an authorized dealer to have the hybrid electric unit and related wires replaced free of charge. Although there have been no reports of injuries or accidents due to the issue, Honda is moving quickly to recall the vehicles. “The safety of our customers is our top priority, and we are committed to continuously improving our products and services,” said Michiel Van Den Brink, president and CEO of Honda Motor Europe. However, due to the severity of the issue, Honda is advising customers to avoid using their vehicles until they have the problem fixed. They are offering loaner cars to customers during the recall process, or can arrange for complimentary pick-up and delivery of the customer’s vehicle for repair. For those whose vehicles are affected, Honda recommends contacting Honda Automobile Customer Service or the Honda Customer Relations Center to secure a free car repair appointment or answer any other questions concerning the recall. Safety is paramount for Honda, and this recall is a testament to the company’s commitment to providing the highest quality vehicles for their customers. Keep an eye out for updates from Honda regarding the recall, and ensure your vehicle is safe for use.
