Honda is recalling 119,000 vehicles in the U.S. after three people were injured by sudden airbag deployments.
The action affects the automaker’s popular 2019 CR-V and requires the replacement of the steering wheel wire harness and supplemental restraint system cable, which can be damaged by metal burrs on the interior of the steering wheel and cause a short.
There have been six reported instances of the problem so far, but none of them caused accidents.
In an unrelated issue, 19,000 various Honda models that had their defective Takata airbags replaced are being recalled because the new ones were improperly installed. Notices will be sent in June, but owners can check if their car is on the list at recalls.honda.com.
The recall includes examples of the following models:
2011-2013 TSX Sport Wagon
2010-2011 Accord Crosstour
2006-2011 Civic (Includes Civic Hybrid and Civic NGV)
