On certain 2017 CR-V vehicles built between April 3rd thru April 11th 2017, the ink on the certification label may rub off when wiping the label with alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, engine oil, window cleaner, or wax. This would cause the vehicle to be noncompliant with Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 567, “Certification.”



Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your new or used vehicle inventory. These vehicles must be repaired before they are sold.

Should your dealership sell an unrepaired vehicle that subsequently causes injury or damage because of the recalled item, the dealership will be solely responsible to the damaged party and will be required to defend and indemnify American Honda for any resulting claims. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.



Replace the certification label.



Your service manager was sent the replacement certification label to update all affected vehicles in your new and assigned vehicle inventory.
