Honda has recalled 1,316 of its 2006-model CR-V crossover SUVs because a faulty part could cause the vehicles to go out of control. Honda says the right front lower control arm on some CR-Vs was improperly welded and could break. The control arm is part of the suspension. It also affects the steering.
Honda will inspect and, if necessary, replace the right front lower control arm. Over time and with extended use, an improper welding process used when manufacturing the control arm may allow the right front lower control arm to break at the weld. If the lower control arm breaks, vehicle handling could be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue. Owners should take their affected vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers was to begin in mid-April. In addition to contacting customers by mail, in mid-April, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going on-line to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009, and selecting option 4.
