Vehicles Affected: Approximately 9,200 model-year 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup trucks manufactured between April 1 and Aug. 11, 2016 and equipped with all-wheel drive
The Problem: Water entering the rear wiring harness through the connector located under the truck-bed drain hole could cause the connection terminals to corrode, possibly increasing electrical resistance. If this happens, the vehicle stability assist system could unexpectedly activate, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the rear wiring harness and related components, replacing them as necessary for free.
What Owners Should Do: The recall is expected to begin Jan. 24. Owners should contact Honda at 888-234-2138. Owners also can call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
