TORONTO, Dec. 22 /CNW/ - Honda Canada Inc. will recall approximately 442 model year 2011 Pilot vehicles in Canada to prevent potential front suspension failure.
A potential problem with the machinery used to tighten the spindle nuts on the front axles of both vehicles, as well as the damper attachment bracket bolts for the Pilot, may cause the front suspension of a small number of these vehicles to fail. An error in the software for the equipment used for this assembly process was identified at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC (HMA). This concern is isolated to vehicles produced at HMA.
Owners of identified model year 2011 Pilot vehicles will receive notification to bring their vehicle to a Honda dealer for inspection. After inspection of the Pilot, the dealer will replace the spindle nuts and if necessary the front damper attachment bracket bolts.
Honda Canada Inc. is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicle to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification from Honda Canada Inc. that their vehicle requires repair. Notification to customers will start in late-December 2010.
Although this recall also affects certain late model 2010 to 2011 Accords in the US, no Accords are affected in Canada.
