Honda Recall -

Honda recalls 550,000 SUVs, risk of headlight failure

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on March 30, 2012

 

Honda has issued a voluntary recall for more than 550,000 of its C-RV and Pilot sport utility vehicles due to a potential risk of headlight failure. According to a statement issued by the automaker, the wiring connecting the headlight switch to the battery is too taut, causing it to loosen gradually from its connectors, possibly until it becomes unattached, cutting the lights off from their power source and causing the low-beam headlamps to switch off unexpectedly.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received more than thirty complaints related to this issue, including 12 owners complaining that both headlights switched off suddenly.  These reports, along with information provided by the automakers, prompted the NHTSA to run diagnostic tests on the vehicles, which revealed the potential for malfunctioning headlamp wiring.

Honda will begin informing consumers of the recall at the end of April. The CR-Vs and Pilots under recall include vehicles from the model years 2002 through 2004. At this time, no incidences of injuries or accidents caused by this manufacturing defect have been reported.

As a San Diego personal injury lawyer, I sincerely hope this recall can be completed before anyone is hurt by this potentially dangerous defect.  If you or someone you care about has been injured in an accident caused by a malfunctioning automobile, I urge you to consider discussing your case with a San Diego car accident lawyer.

Honda issues a Recall for 936,000 Vehicles

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on November 1, 2011

News sources report that Honda has issued a recall of 936,000 Fit and CR-V vehicles. After five different complaints regarding unexpected fires involving the 2006 Honda CR-V, the carmaker investigated the case and realized that the fires might have been the result of a design flaw that damage the electrical contacts and raise the likelihood of conflagration.

Software problems have reportedly been the problem with the CR-Z models. Transmission is allegedly affected by the issue and may put the vehicles in under great risk of rotation in an opposite direction from the transmission gear. Honda has reported that a simple installation of another software could solve this problem.

Reports from various news sources show that there were no major injuries related to these two vehicles accounted by their owners to date. The Japanese car company has stated that they’re working hard to fix all the issues related these two models.

As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer I urge all of you to drive responsibly so mistakes performed on the road won’t represent deadly risks to you or anybody else. Technical issues however are unfortunately very common. Don’t hesitate in contacting a Los Angeles car accident lawyer if you or a loved one has ever been the victim of a vehicle crash or any other car related accident.

 

Honda Pilot Recalled Over Seat Belt Issue

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on September 9, 2011

Honda announced today that they will recall 310,773 of their Pilot model vehicles to reevaluate the seat belt stitching, according to news sources.

The models subject to recall are from the 2009-2011 model years. The recall is limited to those sold in the United States.

The issue is with the driver and front-passenger seat belts. Honda believes that the belts’ stitching may have been manufactured improperly, leading to a belt possibly becoming loose in a crash. Honda has stated that the stitching which connects to belt that lies across the lap to the outboard anchor webbing may be incomplete or missing.

While no injuries have been reported as a result of faulty seat belt stitching, if a belt comes loose in a crash, serious injury could occur.

Owners of affected vehicles will receive a recall notice. Owners are instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer upon receipt of this notice.

As a Los Angeles car accident lawyer, I’m glad no one has yet been injured as a result of this oversight.
