Honda has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it is recalling 330,318 vehicles because the heating pads behind side-view mirrors may not be properly bonded. As a result, the mirror’s glass could fall out, increasing the risk of an accident.
According to documentation filed with NHTSA, affected vehicles include 2020-2022 Odysseys, 2020-2022 Passports, 2020-2021 Pilots and 2020-2021 Ridgelines. Honda tells NHTSA that affected vehicles “fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, ‘Rear Visibility.’”
No crashes or injuries resulting from the recall have been reported. Dealers will replace both side-view mirrors free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed May 8, 2023.
