American Honda Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V vehicles.

What's the problem?

All of the vehicles affected by this recall had the passenger frontal air bag replaced using an air bag inflator repair kit that may have been assembled by the supplier with an incorrect wire harness.

If the replacement air bag inflator has an incorrect wire harness, the air bag may not deploy as intended in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of passenger injury.

This recall affects approximately 630 CR-V vehicles.

What happens next?

Honda will notify owners of the recalled vehicles beginning in early August 2017. Local Honda dealers will then inspect the passenger frontal air bag inflator and replace it, if necessary. This repair will be conducted free of charge to vehicle owners.
