Japanese automaker Honda has done a fine job of staying out of the spotlight when it comes to major recalls in 2022. Unfortunately, its good-luck streak has ended with an issue that once again affects the latest generation of its Ridgeline pickup truck, this time covering more than 117,400 such vehicles.

Affected vehicles include model-year 2017-19 Ridgelines. The issue is with the rearview camera wiring harness, which may fatigue and eventually break thanks to the opening and closing of the tailgate. An inoperative camera can reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash and injury.
Dealers will replace the wiring harness for free. Honda will begin notifying owners Jan. 16, 2023, but those with further questions in the meantime can call Honda at 888-234-2138 (Honda’s number for this recall is 6RW), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit its website to check your vehicle identification number and learn more.
