DETROIT (AP) — Honda is recalling nearly 725,000 SUVs and pickup trucks because the hoods can be opened while the vehicles are moving.
The recall affects certain 2019 passports, 2016 through 2019 pilots, and 2017 through 2020 Ridgeline pickups.
Honda says in documents posted Friday by US safety authorities that the hood locking pin could be damaged and become detached from the hood.
Dealers will repair the firing pin or replace the cap if necessary, at no cost to the owners. Honda will notify owners by letter from January 17.
The global total is 788,931, with just under 725,000 in the US
