Honda recalls over 320,000 vehicles worldwide for faulty door locks
Honda CR-V, Acura ILX models are affected.
According to a statement by American Honda, "Simultaneous operation of the driver's or passenger's inner door handle and either the manual or power door lock may result in the inner door handle release cable becoming partially disengaged." This malfunction means the door may not latch properly, or could cause the door to open unexpectedly.
No accidents or injuries stemming from the issue have been reported, according to Honda.
Affected owners should begin receiving letters from the manufacturer with instructions beginning in mid-August.

Funny to see that MSN always targets Honda and Toyota, but they neglected to report on the Ford Escape major recall for engine fires.
Funny now that GM & Chysler are in bed with the Government , how they don't plaster all their millions of recalled cars all over the media anymore...
#1 Ford, with 14
#2 Chrysler, with 9
#3 Nissan and Honda tied with 8
# 4 GM, with 7
#5 Toyota, with 6
The numbers are all so close it's pretty silly to be arguing about it but I do have to say that if you're going to call someone's products junkier than others based on this nonsense, wouldn't that award have to go to the first few spots on the list? Just saying, this argument is dumb enough without some calling one brand junk when the brand that they prefer has MORE recalls.
Jesse Lindell, where was your car made? How many of the parts were made here? Mine was made in the good ole' USA. It contains more American made parts than any other model. My car is a Toyota Camry -- made in Kentucky and Indiana. Pretty American if you ask me.
