Honda to recall CR-Vs

Due to a door lock defect, Honda is recalling more than 170,000 CR-Vs and Acura ILXs because the front doors of the cars have been opening unexpectedly.

The U.S. division of Honda Motor Co. says that this problem is caused by using the driver’s or passenger’s inner-door handle at the same time as the manual or power lock. As a result, the door may not latch properly.

Honda has said that they will replace both front door latches on 166,000 CR-Vs from the 2012 model year and 6,200 Acura ILXs from the 2013 model year. They will also be replacing the interior front door latches on some CR-V cars.

There have been no accidents or injuries reported due to the lock defect thus far.
