The Japanese automaker, Honda Motor Co. has decided to recall over 554,000 CR-V and Pilot SUVs after there were reports by the federal safety officials of failed low-beam headlights. This is not the first time such an incident has occurred as there have been two prior cases when the company has been forced to recall its cars to address the same issue. There have been a total of 1 million vehicles that have been recalled by the company having headlights.
The company has however assured that it will be fixing the problem with the headlights found in 2002-2004 CR-Vs and 2003 Pilots.
The government has also issued an inquiry to find out whether the rest of the Hondas have the similar problem or not. The issue came in to the limelight after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration started an investigation on CR-Vs. Now that the company has recalled the cars in questions, NHTSA has issued another statement saying it will also be investigating similar issues in the 2003-2008 Element, the MY 2003-2005 Pilot and the MY 2001-2003 Civic.
To clarify the issue Honda said that due to as potential failure with the wiring of the headlight switch, the low beam headlight become inoperative.
