Recall Alert: 2012 Honda Ridgeline

2012Ridgeline

Honda is recalling 17 Ridgeline pickup trucks from the 2012 model year because the airbag status indicator on the passenger side may be incorrectly installed, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The vehicles affected by the recall were built on April 18, 2012. (You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.) If the airbag status indicator does not work properly, vehicle occupants may not be informed or aware that the front passenger airbag is deactivated and will not deploy in a crash. This could increase the risk of injury to a front passenger-seat occupant who may have chosen to sit or been seated elsewhere in the vehicle if the correct indicator were given.

Honda will notify owners starting Sept. 21, and dealers will replace the indicator for free. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
