Honda HR-V

Honda Malaysia has issued a recall for the 2016 Honda HR-V, affecting a total of 2,814 units in Malaysia. The preventative measure involves replacing a possible faulty front stabiliser bar that could break under high stress.

Honda said that the potential breakage is due to insufficient temperature control during the production process, resulting in compromised strength of the bar.

A broken or faulty stabiliser bar may cause instability to the car’s handling, and may subsequently pose a safety hazard to driver and passengers.

As with previous recalls, Honda has started notifying affected customers via letters. If you own a 2016 HR-V, it is highly advised that you send your vehicle for inspection immediately.

You can check your recall status here or by calling the Honda Toll Free number 1-800-88-2020.

Affected stabiliser bars will be replaced with brand new components. All rectification and replacement costs will be borne by Honda Malaysia.

No accidents, injuries or deaths involving the compromised part have been reported in Malaysia.

Honda said that stocks for replacement currently stand at 50% nationwide but expects availability to be at 100% by mid-November 2017.

No other models are affected by this recall.
