Certification Label Recall: 2020 Honda Passport and Pilot
10,050 vehicles will be recalled in the United States to replace the certification labels affixed to the doorjamb
Incorrect ink was used to print the labels, allowing required information to be erased when cleaned
February 12, 2020 — TORRANCE, Calif. American Honda will voluntarily recall 10,050 Honda Passport and Pilot vehicles from the 2020 model year in the United States to replace the certification label affixed to the driver’s doorjamb, free of charge. Incorrect ink was used to print the labels denoting weight ratings, tire size and other required certification information (49 CFR, Part 567). This ink can be removed if the labels are cleaned with certain common cleaners, potentially erasing the required information. If drivers are unable to refer to the required information, they may inadvertently overload their vehicles, which could increase the risk of a crash.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage each owner of an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin in mid-March 2020. Owners of these models can also determine if their vehicles are affected by visiting www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (888) 234-2138.
