The Problem: In certain conditions, the front door handle cables can become slack and allow the doors to open unexpectedly. If the door lock knob is operated while the interior door handle is pulled, the cable between the door handle and door lock can lose tension. If the cable has become slack and the power door locks are operated, the doors could unexpectedly open. Honda and Acura haven’t received any reports of accidents or injuries from this problem.
The Fix: The company will replace the front door latches in the Acura ILX, and the front door latches and interior door handles in the Honda CR-V.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 166,000 Honda CR-V crossovers, 6200 Acura ILX sedans.
