Honda is recalling the 2017-2019 Ridgeline over fears that the fuel pump might crack. Apparently the detergents used at car washes contain enough sulfuric acid to crack the pump’s fuel feed port and start a pressurized gas leak. That means your next car wash could actually start a car fire.
Clips designed to hold the 2019 Pilot and Rideline’s b-pillar panels in place have mounting holes that are too big. Why does that matter? Because it could stop the side curtain airbags from deploying in a crash. Seriously.
Honda is recalling 119 of their newest Insight, Odyssey and Ridgeline vehicles to replace damaged supplemental restraint system (SRS) control units. Honda says “any damage was caused during production and can cause failures of the side airbags, side curtain airbags, knee airbags and seat belt pretensioners.” The 2019 model year is off to a rough start.
The 2018 Pilot and Ridgeline have been recalled because of a dangerous seat issue. The seat rivets can fail to secure the seat slide rails to the forward part of the seats, something that could cause the front seats to separate from the floors in a crash.
