Honda recalls 2012 CR-V, 2013 Acura ILX due to faulty door locks

Article by Anita Panait, on July 19, 2012

Honda Motor Co. disclosed Thursday that it is recalling 321,453 CR-V SUVs and Acura ILX sedans around the world to replace faulty door locks. The recall will affect about 20,920 model-year 2012 CR-Vs and around 800 model-year 2013 Acura ILXs in Canada.

According to Honda, simultaneous operation of the driver's or front passenger's inner door handle and either the manual or power door lock may result in the inner door handle release cable becoming partially disengaged.

As a result, the door may not latch when closed or the door may latch and close, but may open when the door locks are operated, Honda said. 

The Japanese carmaker said the situation may cause the affected doors to open unexpectedly. Honda initiated the recall to replace both front door latches and, in some CR-V SUVs, the interior front door handles. A Honda spokesman said that no accidents or injuries have been reported, while declining to reveal the cost of the recall.
