The company said on their website that the issue is due to "manufacturing process errors." At this time, Honda has not received any reports of crashes or injuries.
Vehicles being recalled include:
- 2018-2019 Acura MDX
- 2018-2019 Honda Pilot
- 2019 Acura RLX, RLX Sport Hybrid
- 2019 Acura TLX
- 2019 Honda Odyssey
- 2019 Honda Ridgeline
If you own one of the vehicles mentioned above you will receive notification of the recall via mail beginning in early June.
If you determine your vehicle is included in the recall you are encouraged to take your vehicle to an authorized dealer to have your timing belt inspected and, if needed, replaced for free.
