Safety Recall: 2006ꟷ14 Ridgeline Rear Frame Repair

Supersedes 22-016, dated June 17, 2022, to revise the information highlighted in yellow.

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Year Model Trim Level VIN Range
2006ꟷ14 Ridgeline ALL Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.

 

REVISION SUMMARY

Under BACKGROUND, the information was changed.

 

BACKGROUND

In salt-belt states where de-icing agents are used to maintain the roadway, the de-icing agents, along with mud and dirt, could accumulate along the rear frame, where the fuel tank is mounted. Over time, the accumulated de-icing agents/mud/dirt mixture could cause the fuel tank band mounts to corrode and separate from the frame. If this occurs, an unsecured fuel tank can become damaged from undercarriage impact, which can possibly result in fuel leakage.

As of July 22, 2022 a full inspection and repair service bulletin (22-021 Safety Recall: 2006-14 Ridgeline Rear Frame Repair) was released for the affected VIN population. All affected VINs that showed OPEN in the iN VIN status inquiry for 22-016 will now show OPEN for 22-021 instead. Go to service bulletin 22-021 Safety Recall: 2006-14 Ridgeline Rear Frame Repair to repair the vehicle.

All unaffected VINs have been marked closed (C) for service bulletin 22-016 in the iN VIN status inquiry as of July 22, 2022 when the affected VINs were determined. Unaffected VINs in your dealer inventory are no longer on STOP SALE. Make sure to notify any customers of unaffected vehicles who were previously told their vehicle may be subject to this safety recall. If a customer believes their vehicle should be included the campaign, contact your DPSM and have the customer contact ACS with their concern.
