Default Honda recalls 268,000 CR-V models over window switches

Filed under: Recalls, Crossover, Honda

Honda has issued a recall on certain CR-V crossovers from the 2002 to 2006 model years over faulty driver-side power window switches. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the window switches in these affected vehicles may fail and could possibly cause a fire.

A total of 268,655 vehicles are affected by this recall, all of which were built between February 19, 2002 and July 28, 2006.

NHTSA states that if the window switch fails, it could "overheat, smoke and cause a fire," and such an instance can even occur if the vehicle is not in use. That said, NHTSA is advising owners to park outside until the recall repair has been completed.

Honda will begin notifying owners in early November, and dealerships will inspect and repair the faulty window switches free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.Continue reading Honda recalls 268,000 CR-V models over window switches
