Honda Motor Co. has recalled certain Honda CRV compact SUVs from the 2012 model year, and Acura ILX sedans from the 2013 model year to fix a flaw in their door-locking mechanisms. In a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the car maker said that if an occupant operates the manual or power door lock while someone is moving an interior front door handle, the cable connecting the door handle to the door-latch system may loosen. If this happens and the cable moves far enough from its proper position it could prevent the door from latching properly.
If the door is not completely latched it may open in a crash or during normal driving, increasing the risk of injury. The recall affects 172,837 vehicles. Under the recall, which is to begin this month, Honda dealers will replace the front door latch assemblies free of charge. Honda said it will also replace the interior front door handles in certain CR-Vs. Owners may contact the company at 800-999-1009.
