Recall Alert: 2012 Honda CR-V

2012-honda-cr-v
Honda is recalling 264 model-year 2012 versions of the CR-V compact crossover due to incorrect labels, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Aug. 30 through Aug. 31, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and have incorrect values for the gross vehicle weight rating, front and rear gross axle weight rating, tire size and rim size. Correct labels are mandated by law.

"A misprinted label could lead to improper vehicle loading. Improper loading could result in a tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash," NHTSA said in a statement.

Honda will notify owners starting Nov. 6, 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.
