Honda Recalling 2012 Ridgeline Models

Taylor Jackson4 years ago

Safecar.gov is reporting that Honda is recalling certain model year 2012 Ridgeline vehicles, because of an incorrect passenger airbag status indicator.

Recall Concerns Airbags

  • According to Safecar.gov, the airbag status indicator has affected potentially 17 units. 
  • The recall by Honda is for certain model year 2012 Ridgeline vehicles manufactured on April 18, 2012.
  • The vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, “Occupant Crash Protection,” because of the incorrect installation of the airbag status indicator.
  • The safety concerns come from the fact that without the proper passenger airbag indicator, the driver and other vehicle occupants may not be informed or aware that the front passenger airbag is off and will not deploy in a crash.

How to Contact

  • According to Safecar.gov, Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger airbag indicator free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 21, 2012. Owners may contact Honda Automobile Customer services at 1-800-999-1009.
  • Honda's recall campaign number is S52. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
