Recall Watch: 2002-2004 Honda CR-V in NHTSA Investigation

May 2, 2011

The 2002-2004 Honda CR-V is the subject of a federal safety investigation for a potential problem with its headlights.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that drivers of the affected CR-Vs could find their low-beam headlights do not operate correctly, if at all. The agency has fielded 12 complaints from owners, from a pool of about 288,000 vehicles produced under the CR-V badge during those years.

The NHTSA adds that a switch in the wiring harness in some affected vehicles could be damaged by overheating, which has led some owners to have the parts replaced.

If the agency determines the problem is severe enough to warrant a recall, Honda will inform owners and will be compelled to complete repairs for free.
