Honda Recalls More Than 150,000 Vehicles in U.S.

DETROIT June 9, 2004; Reuters reported that Honda Motor Co. Ltd. is recalling more than 150,000 vehicles due to problems with air bags and interior lights, federal safety regulators said on Wednesday.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said potentially incorrect inflation rates in the driver's side front air bag prompted Honda to recall 130,617 compact CR-V sport utility vehicles from the 2002-2004 model years.

Separately, it said Honda was recalling 19,572 Accord sedans because the dimmer control for their instrument panel lights can fail due to heat buildup.

If the condition occurs drivers of the Accords affected, from the 2000-2001 model years, may be unable to see instrument panel gauges, such as the speedometer at night.
