American Honda Recalls Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles

Product Recall

America Honda is recalling 15,400 recreational off-highway vehicles due to a fire hazard. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, vegetation and debris can accumulate on the middle skid plate and make contact with the vehicles’ exhaust system. The dried debris can ignite, resulting in smoke or fire.

There have been ten incident reports of the defect resulting in fire. No injuries have been reported to Honda or the CPSC.

The recall is for all models of the 2014 Honda Pioneer 700 recreational off-highway vehicle (ROV). The recalled vehicles came in two-seat and four-seat models and were black with camouflage, olive or red hood and trim pieces. “HONDA” can be found on the front grill and rear tail gate. “Pioneer 700” appears on the sides of the vehicle behind the driver’s and front passenger’s seat.

The vehicles were sold at authorized Honda powersports dealers nationwide from August 2013 through September 2014. You can find the model and serial numbers on a label found on the driver’s side front wheel well. The follow model and serial number ranges were recalled:

Model Number Serial Number Range (All begin with 1HF) Number of Seats
SXS 700M2 2AC VE0225E4000006 to VE022XE4006304 2

If you or someone you know owns one of these models, stop using the vehicle immediately and take it to an authorized Honda dealer to have the original middle skid plate removed. They will replace the part with an updated middle skid plate free of charge.
