Honda Recalling CR-Vs

A power window switch could fail or melt

Honda is recalling 268,655 model year 2002-2006 CR-V passenger vehicles, manufactured from February 19, 2002, through July 28, 2006.

The driver-side power window switch may fail or melt.  If the switch fails, it could overheat, smoke, and cause a fire.  A switch failure and a fire could occur even if the vehicle is not in use.  As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the recall repair has been performed.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the switches -- as necessary -- free of charge.  The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, November 2, 2012.

Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
