Honda is recalling more than 330,000 vehicles because heating pads behind both side-view mirrors may not be bonded properly, which could lead to the mirror glass falling out and increase the risk of a crash.
Vehicles included in the recall are the 2020-2022 Odyssey, 2020-2022 Passport, 2020-2021 Pilot, and 2020-2021 Ridgeline.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the vehicles don’t comply with the necessary rear visibility requirements.
Honda dealers will replace the side-view mirrors on impacted vehicles free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be sent out on May 8. Vehicle owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
This is the second significant recall for Honda in as many weeks, as the automaker recalled almost 450,000 vehicles for improperly latching seatbelts. That action involved some CR-V, Accord, Accord Hybrid, Odyssey, Insight, and Acura RDX models. The NHTSA said that a manufacturing issue could cause the belt buckle channel to interfere with passengers’ ability to latch and unlatch the seatbelts.
