Honda Recalls 118K CR-Vs
May 23, 2019—Honda Motor U.S. unit said on Wednesday it is recalling 118,000 2019 Honda CR-Vs following reports of three injuries tied to sudden airbag deployments, according to a report by CNBC.
The issue is separate from a series of recalls Honda has conducted over the last decade to replace more than 21 million defective Takata air bag inflators in about 12.9 million U.S. vehicles that Honda has said are responsible for 16 U.S. deaths.
The automaker said it is recalling the 2019 Honda CR-V to replace steering wheel wire harnesses and supplemental restraint system cable reels after six unexpected driver airbag deployments that occurred without a crash, according to the report.
There are no reports so far of crashes.
