Two very different Honda vehicles will soon be recalled for the same issue. Due to a manufacturing error, certain CR-V SUVs and yet to be released Acura ILX sedans may not be able to have their doors properly latched. If the manual or power door lock is activated at the same time a passenger is attempting to open the handle, the connecting cable could come loose. This cable that brings the front interior door handle to the latch mechanism can move out of position enough that the door would fail to close securely.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Honda is investigating approximately 172,837 2012 and 2013 model year vehicles. While the number division of CR-V and ILX models being recalled has yet to be made official, big money could easily be put on the SUV holding the majority. To fix the issue, certified dealers will replace the door latch assemblies and on some CR-Vs, the interior front door handle will be replaced as well. The remedy will take place at no extra cost to owners and notifications should be sent out on or about August 16 of this year.
