Recall: 820,000 more Hondas for faulty headlamp wiring
More than 1.3 million Honda Pilots, CR-Vs and Civics are now subject to the recall that began in March.
In March, Honda recalled 554,428 SUVs -- model-year 2002 to 2004 CR-Vs and 2003 Pilots -- because parts of the electrical terminal near the light switch could wear and melt. Late last month, Honda told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it was adding more models, the 2002-2003 Civic and 2004-2005 Pilot, to the same recall.
Dealers will replace the light switch or fix the low-beam headlamp wiring harness, whichever may be needed. Owners have already been notified, but if you're an owner in doubt, contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. In total, 1.37 million Honda models are included in the recall.
On Monday, Honda recalled an additional 573,147 Honda Accords, on top of more than 52,000 Acura TL sedans recalled in May, for leaking power-steering fluid.

To much plastic and the wrong gage wire and termanals to carry the current . I have been fixin this problem for years now on a lot of autos US and across the Oceans. This crap should have been tested long before it was put into production! Creative Math just doe'nt work here Someone needs to go back to School ! Thomas Edison is rolling over in his grave, because there are fools who don't know how to lite a light bulb right!
THUMBS ALL THE WAY UP FOR "HONDA"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
CAN I GET A YEAH!!!!!!!!
BEST CAR IN AMERICA AND ELSEWHERE!!!!
If anyone else loves their cars and they aren't Honda's, that's good too! We all love whatever it is we own and that's fine. Nothing wrong with that.
But for me .... Honda is the WAY to go!!! :)
Built in the usa with components sourced from where is my point. NOTHING nowadays is 100% american made.
Hondas are ALL that I would EVER buy. Being a mechanic & after owning over 50 cars, I know more then the average person. Whoever thinks "DOMESTICS" are Made in the USA, do your research, you are sadly mistaken. All GM motors, transmissions & parts ARE MADE IN MEXICO since the mid 1980's & before for some models. Ford is getting parts from various areas around the world. Most made vehicles here in the USA as of today are the Honda & Toyota. Google it! All my Honda's have well over 200k, some more then 300k. They are extremely reliable, abused, driven hard, easy to customize, hold their value more then most vehicles, bumper to bumper widely available parts for every bolt or spec, Honda keeps records on everything, highly desired by educated drivers who aren't as ignorant as others, tolerate a beating daily, have lower curb weight for some models, very high RPM rev range stock with strong power curve throughout, EXCELLENT GAS MILEAGE, LAST forever if taking care of w/ regular maintenance still lasting being neglected, solid strong interiors that hold up & don't break or rattle,& boosted are no joke can stand up to V8's & high end Super cars. Domestics have no record of anything, carry parts for only a few years, depreciate in value the second you drive them, everything starts breaking & you can expect a motor or trans swap by 100k or shortly there after, low rev limiter with lower power curve, heavy curb weights, noisey interior plastics shortly after new, lack technology that even compares to the Honda's technology from the late 1980's...VTEC Variable Valve Timing Electronic Control is now just being copied by EVERY car maker today! Honda's been doing this since the 80's & even the older Honda's from the 60's had 8k redline, in the 60's! Hondas are the SUPERIOR car brand & if you don't believe me buy one, You won't regret it. I have converted a lot of people. We have owned 50 cars in last 10yrs at least 30 of them were Honda's. Hondas sell within a day or 2. Domestics are hard to even give away at 1/4 of their KBB value. So what if Honda recalls cars for something as stupid as a plastic piece. At least you don't have to worry about your car blowing up before its even broken in.
