Japanese automaker Honda (NYSE:HMC) announced Friday that it is recalling more than half a million older-model SUVs over headlight issues.
About 554,000 model-year 2002-04 CR-V and 2003 Pilot vehicles in the U.S. will be recalled to inspect and replace components of the headlight wiring system. A problem with the headlight switch wiring could cause low-beam headlights to fail, potentially increasing the risk of a crash.
Honda said no crashes or injuries have been reported that are related to the issue.
The company will be mailing notifications to owners in late April, or owners can visit www.recalls.honda.com or call (800) 999-1009, then select option 4, to find out if they are affected.
The recalls follow others this year, including about 8,700 Honda Pilot and Acura MDX sport utility vehicles (model year 2012) because of improper VSF valves that could cause fuel leaks, and more than 1,000 CR-Vs from model year 2006 over control arm issues.
Honda had the dubious distinction of issuing the largest number of recalled vehicles in 2011, 3.9 million units across 17 recall campaigns, passing Toyota (NYSE:TM) after expanding a 2011 recall earlier this year.
