Honda Recalls 554,000 SUVs With Faulty Headlights

Honda Motor Co Ltd is recalling about 554,000 sport utility vehicles in the United States to inspect for faulty wiring in headlights.

Honda said in a statement that the recall affects CR-V SUVs from model years 2002 to 2004 and Pilot SUVs from model year 2003. The Japanese automaker will inspect and replace parts of the headlight wiring system that could fail, causing the low-beam headlights not to work and increase the risk of crash.

No injuries or crashes have been reported relating to the issue, Honda said.

Letters will be mailed to affected owners in late April, but consumers can see if their vehicles require repairs by going to or calling 800-999-1009.

  1. This is a good decision.Honda Motors is planning on rolling out its first product of the compact MPV segment in order to rival the recently launched Maruti Ertiga under the code named 2NH by the end of the year 2014. The three-row seven-seater compact utility vehicle will be sitting on the same platform as the next generation Honda Jazz. In certain car markets of Asia, Honda sells an MPV based on the Jazz platform known as the Freed MPV; the said neoteric MPV will emerge as the next generation model of the Freed MPV. The engine expected to be doing duty in the petrol guise of 2NH compact MPV will be the 1.5-liter iVTEC petrol motor which also powers the upgraded version of Honda City. On the other hand the diesel version of this Honda MPV will be extracting power from the all new 1.4 or 1.6 liter engine that is currently under construction.
