Honda Recalls CR-V, CR-Z Due To Electrical Problems

Honda has announced a recall of 80,111 CR-V vehicles from the 2006 model year, as well as well as 5,626 CR-Z vehicles from the 2011 model year due to electrical issues. The recalled CR-V suffers a design problem in the power window master switch that can lead to a fire due to window cleaner accumulation over time, and the CR-Z is affected by a software bug that could possibly cause the motor to rotate in the opposite direction of the transmission’s gear.

Honda, which will notify owners in late September, announced the recall on its Honda Recalls site. Owners of recalled vehicles can visit or call 800-999-1009, select option 4 and enter their VINs to see if their vehicles have been recalled.
