Honda Recalling 2002-2006 CR-V for Fire Risk

Honda is recalling certain model year 2002 – 2006 CR-V vehicles. In announcing the recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that the “driver-side power window switch may fail or melt.”\n\nAccording to BloombergBusinessweek, “Honda said rain or other liquids could enter through a driver’s open window and damage the master power switch on the door. If that happens, the switch could overheat and melt, causing a fire.\n\nNHTSA said owners should park CR-Vs from those model years outside until the recall is performed to avoid any property damage from a fire. A fire could start even when the ignition is off and the CR-V is parked.”\n\nHonda spokesman Ed Miller said Honda will begin contacting vehicle owners next month and will repair the issue free of charge. Vehicle owners can contact Honda at (800) 999-1009.\n\n \n\n \n\n \n\n \n\n
