Honda dealerships will carry out the necessary repairs at no expense to the owners. This includes replacing the cable harness and installing a straightening cover. Notifications will be sent to affected vehicle owners via letters starting from July 24. The recall underscores Honda’s commitment to addressing safety concerns promptly and providing reliable transportation to its customers.
Honda has issued a recall for specific models of its Odyssey minivans spanning from 2018 to 2023, as well as Pilot SUVs from 2019 to 2022 and Passport SUVs from 2019 to 2023. The recall comes in response to a problem associated with a faulty coaxial cable connector, as stated in documents released by U.S. safety regulators on Friday.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has highlighted the potential consequences of the issue. If the rear view camera fails to display an image, it can significantly reduce driver visibility, thus increasing the risk of a collision. Addressing this problem promptly is crucial to maintaining road safety.
Warranty Claims and Injury Reports
Honda reports having received approximately 274,000 warranty claims between May 2017 and June 8. However, there have been no reports of any injuries related to the faulty rear view camera connector. Taking proactive measures through this recall is an important step in ensuring the well-being of Honda vehicle owners.
