In a news statement, the American Honda Motor Company, in conjunction with and in compliance with the rules and regulations of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced a recall of all Honda CR-Vs, model year 2002-2004, and all Honda Pilots of model year 2003. The recall of the Honda CR-V and Pilot models is due to faults with the switch wiring harness that could potentially lead to decreased functionality of the low beam headlights. The company believes that if this defect were to occur in these vehicles, drivers may be unable to navigate properly due to poor visibility, and may increase their chances of being involved in a crash. Honda wishes to let owners know that dealers will repair all faulty parts for free, and that Honda is working quickly to notify all owners.
As a Harrisburg car accident lawyer, I’ve seen this kind of safety recall several times over the course of my career and I understand the devastating injuries that can occur through the use of defective auto products. Manufacturers have many safety measures in place to ensure the quality of their products, however, occasionally, mistakes can be made. If you’ve suffered an injury in a crash that you think was the result of a defective auto product, it may be in your best interests to contact a Harrisburg personal injury attorney to learn more about your rights as a consumer and the possible legal avenues that may be open to you.Tweet
