Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

AIR BAGS:ON-OFF SWITCH ASSEMBLYRecall Date: 08/31/2012
  • Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2012 Ridgeline vehicles manufactured on April 18, 2012. An incorrect passenger airbag status indicator may have been installed on the vehicles causing them to fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 17
  • Consequence: Without the proper passenger airbag indicator, the driver and other vehicle occupants may not be informed or aware that the front passenger airbag is off and will not deploy in a crash, thereby potentially increasing the risk of injury to a front passenger seat occupant that may have chosen to sit or been seated elsewhere in the vehicle if the correct indicator had been given.
  • Remedy: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger airbag indicator free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 21, 2012. Owners may contact Honda Automobile Customer services at 1-800-999-1009.
  • Notes: Honda's recall campaign number is S52. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
