Recall Alert: 2002-2006 Honda CR-V

Honda is recalling 268,655 model-year 2002-2006 versions of the CR-V compact crossover due to problems with the driver's side power window switch, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Feb. 19, 2002, through July 28, 2006 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and use a faulty power window switch that could overheat and melt. This could lead to a fire.

"As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the recall repair has been performed," NHTSA said in a statement.

Honda will notify owners starting Nov. 2, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
