Honda Recalls 1316 2006 CR-V Models for Faulty Control Arms
Honda issues voluntary recall of 1316 2006 CR-V models in the U.S. to inspect
The Problem: Honda is issuing a voluntary recall of 1316 2006 CR-V models in the U.S. to inspect, and if necessary, replace the right front lower control arm. The company claims that with extended use, improper welds made on the control arms could split apart, affecting vehicle control, and increasing the potential for a crash. No injuries or crashes have been reported so far due to this issue.
The Fix: Honda encourages owners to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification from Honda. Mailed notifications will begin mid-April. Owners can determine if their specific vehicle is subject to the recall by visiting recalls.honda.com, or calling 800-999-1009, and selecting option 4.
