Honda has decided to call back thousands of 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid vehicles over an electrical issue that could lead to fires. According to the company, the recall affects certain vehicles manufactured from October 2019 to October 2020. The issue lies within the battery cooling system of the recalled vehicles. When too much voltage passes through, the system may heat up and eventually start a fire. Honda says that this is a “rare” occurrence and that the majority of owners should not experience any extreme issues. Honda has stated that owners will be alerted via an official recall notice. The company believes that four thousand vehicles are affected by the recall, though this has not yet been confirmed. Honda is asking owners of affected vehicles to contact a Honda dealer immediately. The company will arrange for a technician to inspect the vehicle’s battery and cooling system, and make any necessary repairs or replacements at no cost. Honda has also asked owners to disconnect the battery and park the vehicle outside until the recall is complete. Honda says that it will begin the repair process for affected owners as early as June 2021. The company has also stated that it will extend the warranty of the CR-V Hybrid, covering any related electrical issues up to four years or 50 thousand miles. This recall affects thousands of Honda CR-V Hybrid vehicles and should not be taken lightly. Owners of affected vehicles should be sure to contact their local dealer as soon as possible in order to ensure their safety and prevent potential fires.
