Default New recalls for 2006 Honda CR-V and 2011 CR-Z - over 85,000 cars affected

From Honda
09/04/2011 - TORRANCE, Calif.

Honda will notify affected owners of two voluntary recalls in the U.S.
in late September 2011.

Honda will voluntarily recall 80,111 CR-V vehicles from the 2006 model
year in the U.S. 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. No injuries or deaths have been reported related to this
condition.

Additionally, Honda will voluntarily recall 5,626 CR-Z vehicles from
the 2011 model year in the U.S. that are equipped with manual
transmissions 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. 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. A software update will add further controls to
correct the problem. No injuries or deaths have been reported related
to this condition.

Honda is announcing these recalls to encourage all owners of affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as
they receive notification of a recall from Honda. Notification to
customers will begin in late September, 2011.

When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more
important to the company than fulfilling our obligation and
responsibility to alert our customers. To this end, in addition to
contacting customers by mail, after late September, owners of these
vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair
by going on-line to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800)
999-1009, and selecting option 4.

I predict that after this update, owners will see their gas mileage go
down.

Exactly. My son's 2006 Civic Hybrid gets less gas mileage than our 1998
Taurus after the "software upgrade" they foisted upon him to "improve his
battery life" ... of course the battery will last forever if you never USE
it but constantly charge it. Just another scam to keep from replacing the
IMA battery under warranty. No more Hondas for us after this scam.

My 2003 Civic hybrid has averaged 47 mpg (US) over 9 years.
That includes city and winter driving (Southern Ontario).
On warm dry days highway mileage is much higher.
