Honda Recalls 770,000 SUVs Over Headlights

Honda Motor (NYSE:HMC) voluntarily recalled 770,000 sports utility vehicles on Friday due to a glitch in the headlight wiring system that could cause low beams to stop working.

The pullback impacts CR-Vs made from 2002 to 2004 and the 2003 Pilot in all markets except Canada, whose cars use a different lighting circuit design. A majority, or 554,000 vehicles, are in the U.S.

No crashes or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue, but Honda said the loss of light can increase the chances of an accident.

Drivers with these models can return their vehicle to have the lighting system inspected and replaced, Honda said.

Letters will be mailed to affected owners in late April, but consumers can see if their vehicles require repairs by going to or calling 800-999-1009.
