Honda Recalls 544,000 SUVs

Honda known for solid reliability, has announced it will recall about 550,000 of its Pilot and CR-V crossover due to problems that could cause the low beam headlights to suddenly stop working. Honda has now recalled more cars then any other automobile manufacture operating in the US. According to Honda the recall is the result of wiring problems  limited to 2002 to 2004 model-year versions of the small CR-V, and to the 2003 Pilot. The auto company further states that there is not enough slack in the wiring and, over time, routine vehicle jouncing can lead to a break in the wiring leading to the headlight switch. Previously Honda had to recall 3.8 million vehicles in the U.S., including a large number equipped with potentially defective airbags. Those Honda vehicles were recalled in 2011 and earlier this year about 9,000 new Honda Pilot and Acura MDX models were recalled due to potentially faulty fuel tanks that pose the risk of a spill or fire.
