Recall Alert: 2011-12 Honda Ridgeline


Honda is recalling 206 Ridgeline pickup trucks because they may be equipped with the wrong type of spare tire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were manufactured from Aug. 25 through Nov. 29, 2011, the pickup may be equipped with a full-size tire instead of a temporary spare tire. In these cases, the tire specifications listed on a placard affixed to the vehicle — listing the size and recommended cold inflation pressure for a temporary tire — are not correctly displayed. An improperly inflated tire could cause tire failure and increase the risk of a crash.

Honda has already started to notify owners, and dealers will exchange the spare tire assembly or replace the information placard for free. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
