Recall Alert: Honda CR-V

Honda Recalls 2006 CR-V and 2011 CR-Z

Sep 07, 2011



2011 Honda CR-Z

If you own a Honda CR-V or CR-Z, Honda’s two most recent recalls may affect you. Honda is voluntarily recalling a total of 80,111 CR-Vs in the U.S. from the 2006 model year to replace the power window master switch. “The design of the power window master switch can allow residue from interior cleaners to accumulate, which can, over time with switch use, cause the electrical contacts to degrade and may lead to a fire in the switch,” writes Honda in a press release.

The second recall affects 2011 CR-Zs that are equipped with a manual transmission. Honda says 5,626 CR-Zs are being voluntarily recalled to update the software that controls the hybrid electric motor. “In the affected vehicles, when the gasoline engine has stalled with the IMA battery in a very low state of charge and the transmission in gear, it is possible for the electric motor to rotate in the direction opposite to that selected by the transmission,” says Honda. “If this occurs and the driver has not engaged the brakes, the vehicle may slowly roll in an unexpected direction (e.g., backwards when the transmission is in a forward gear), potentially leading to a crash.”

The automaker says that the software update will add further controls to correct the problem, and that no injuries or deaths have resulted from either defect. Honda will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles by mail in late September. If you’re concerned that this recall affects you, you can visit www.recalls.honda.com or contact Honda by phone at (800) 999-1009 and select option 4.

BIZARRE HONDA RECALL


Quote:
We gave up reporting on recalls some time back because there are just so many of them. But this has got to be the weirdest recall of all time. Not to pick on Honda, but there’s a problem with the CR-Z hybrid. If the gasoline engine stalls with the hybrid battery in a low charge and the transmission in gear, the electric motor can rotate in the wrong direction. So even if you’re in a forward gear, the car will go backwards! I guess that gives new meaning to the term hybrid technology.
