In a news release, American Honda Motor Co, in association with and in accordance with the rules and guidelines of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced the voluntary recall of certain model year 2006 CR-V vehicles due to a crash hazard the vehicles pose to motorists.
This recall affects approximately 1,316 model year 2006 CR-V vehicles. Honda initiated the recall after discovering that the strength of the weld that attaches the sub-frame bushing collar to the front passenger-side lower arm is inadequate. Due to the normal vibrations created by driving, the collar could potentially detach from the arm. If this were to happen, the driver could experience a loss of control, increasing the risk of the vehicle being involved in an accident.
The company is currently in the process of notifying owners affected by this recall. Owners are asked to schedule an appointment at their nearest authorized Honda dealer where a mechanic will inspect the production lot stamp on the front lower arm and, if it is deemed necessary, replace the lower arm for free.
