Honda has issued a recall for 2006 models of the CR-V crossover. The problem stems from a flaw in the CR-V's suspension system, which could result in a crash.

According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the strength of the weld that holds two parts of the CR-V's suspension in place -- namely, the sub-frame bushing collar and the passenger-side front lower arm -- isn't up to snuff.  As a result, the two can separate over time, and if that happens, drivers will find it much harder to steer the vehicle. That, in turn, could cause an accident. 

Though the NHTSA bulletin doesn't go into great detail, the problem seems to be linked to a particular lot of faulty parts, which would explain why only 1,316 CR-Vs are subject to recall. 

Honda says that it will begin sending out notices of the recall by April 17. At that time, owners will be able to take their vehicles to a Honda dealer, who will inspect the production lot stamp on the passenger-side front lower arm and replace the arm, if necessary.

If you have questions in the meantime, we encourage you to contact Honda Customer Service at 800-999-1009 and ask about recall #S33, or ring NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and inquire about campaign #12V124000.
