Honda-CR-V-2019-exterior-spms-recall 2019 Honda CR-V | Manufacturer image

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 336,500 model-year 2019 Honda CR-V SUVs

The Problem: The owner’s manual incorrectly describes when the “Passenger Airbag Off” indicator should illuminate. If the front passenger does not correctly understand how the airbag functions, there may be an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Honda will provide a sticker with the correction information to be added to the owner’s manual for free.

What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners Nov. 15. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
