Honda expands recall for faulty headlights

Thu, 04 Oct 2012

Honda is expanding a recall launched in March to fix a headlight problem to include the Civic and Pilot.

About 820,000 vehicles have been added to the recall, which now covers 2002-2003 Civic sedans and 2004-2005 Pilot SUVs.

The problem is with the headlight-wiring system, which could cause the low beams not to work. The low visibility could result in a crash, though Honda says no crashes have been reported yet.

When announced in March, the recall included 550,000 CR-V SUVs from 2002-2004 and Pilots from 2003.

Honda says it will inspect the headlight wiring and the headlight switch, replacing them if necessary. Owners can call Honda's customer service line at (800) 999-1009 for more information.

This is the second time this week Honda has expanded a recall. On Oct. 1, Honda added cars to its power-steering recall, in which hoses can crack and lead to a fire.
