Honda recalls 321,000 cars after faulty locks mean doors could come open WHILE DRIVING
Honda is recalling more than 321,000 small SUVs and cars around the world over fears that the doors may not close properly and could even open while driving. The car manufacturer said on Thursday that if the inside driver or passenger door handles are used at the same time as the power or manual door locks, the inner door latch may not work. This means a door may not lock and could open while the car is in use. The recall affects 166,600 CR-Vs and more than 6,200 ILXs in the U.S. The recall affects 314,000 CR-V small SUVs from the 2012 model year and about 7,300 Acura ILX small luxury cars from the 2013 model year. The company says that no accidents or injuries have been reported but federal law requires quick action when a potential safety issue is discovered – even if there have not been any problems reported by owners.Honda says dealers will inspect the cars and fix them if needed. Owners should get letters from the company starting in mid-August.
