Honda CR-V Recalled for Front Lower Control Arm Issues, 1,300 Units Affected

If you own a 2006 model-year Honda CR-V, you might need to keep an eye on your mail box.

Honda is voluntarily recalling 1,316 CR-V’s because it suspects that the weld that they used to hold the right front lower control arm was improper. With time, that weld can break which potentially can lead to an accident.

So far, no one has reported this issue and Honda hopes to address this problem before anyone has an unfortunate accident.

Honda will be mailing out the recall notice to the affected customers by mid-April. Customers are encouraged to visit a Honda authorized dealer as soon as they get their notice.

If you think your vehicle could be affected and yet did not receive a letter from Honda by mid-April, you can also check the status of your vehicle by going online to or by calling (800) 999-1009 and then selecting option 4.

    My front right lower control arm snapped and my car fell apart. Luckily I was parked, not driving when it occurred. However, Honda says they are not responsible. The weld broke. How can they NOT be responsible
