Recalls for 2017 Acura

2017 ACURA RDX
NHTSA Campaign ID:EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS
Manufacturer:Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Manufacture Dates:01/01/1900 - 01/01/1900
Potential Units Affected:1425

Defect Description:

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2017 CR-V and Acura RDX vehicles. The Certification Labels on the affected vehicles were printed with ink that may be inadvertently wiped away with an alcohol solvent. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

Consequence:

If the label information can be wiped away, the operator may not be able to refer to the information, possibly resulting in the vehicle being overloaded, which can increase the risk of a crash.

Action:

Honda and Acura will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Certification Label, free of charge. The recall is planned to begin May 22, 2017. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are KF3 (CR-V)and KF4 (RDX).
