Honda is recalling 1,316 model year 2006 CR-V vehicles to inspect and, if necessary, replace the right front lower control arm because over time, and with extended use, the arm may break at the weld due to an improper welding job.
If the lower control arm breaks, vehicle handling could be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. Thus far, no crashes or injuries have been reported in relation to this recall.
Honda is encouraging owners of vehicles affected by this recall to go to an authorized Honda dealer as soon as they receive a recall notification. Notifications will be mailed starting in mid April. Owners can also determine if their 2006 CR-V requires repair by visiting recalls.honda.com, or by calling 800-999-1009, and selecting option 4.
