NHTSA Advises CR-V Owners to Park Outside Due to Fire Risk
The affected vehicles are 2002-2006 Honda CR-V models assembled between February 19, 2002, and July 28, 2006. The problem is that the driver side power window switch could fail, overheat, melt, and cause a fire even if the vehicle is not in use.
Honda will notify affected vehicle owners, and inspect and repair CR-V models free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on November 2, 2012. The NHTSA campaign ID number is 12V486000, and concerned owners can contact Honda directly at 1-800-999-1009 with regard to Honda recall number S61.
