Honda Recalls More than 112,000 Ridgelines
Honda is recalling 112,060 vehicles after discovering a defect in the frame that could cause increase risk of fire. This recall effects 2006 to 2014 Honda Ridgelines that are sold or registered in “Salt-Belt” Regions. This means vehicles located where de-icing agents are applied during the winter.
An investigation has revealed that accumulation of de-icing agents and other debris on the rear frame where the fuel tank is mounted could cause the mounting bands to corrode and separate. This could result in fuel leakage and fire risk if the fuel tank is damaged.
