Approximately 336,500 model-year 2019 Honda CR-V SUVs are being recalled due to incorrect owner’s manual information. The manual incorrectly describes when the “Passenger Airbag Off” indicator should illuminate. If the front passenger does not correctly understand how the airbag functions, there may be an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Honda began notifying owners on Nov. 15. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, Honda will provide a sticker with the correct information to be added to the owner’s manual.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
