Safety Recall: 2015–16 CR-V Replacement Engine Short Block Out of Specification

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Year Model Trim VIN Range
2015–16 CR-V ALL Check the iN VIN status for eligibility (fewer than 20 vehicles are affected).

 

BACKGROUND

A small number of replacement engine block assemblies may have been manufactured with the incorrect pistons. In a small number of cases (fewer than 20) where an original engine was already replaced in a vehicle, a direct injection engine block may have been replaced with an engine block with pistons designed for regular port injection. An engine block with the incorrect pistons installed may result in the MIL coming on or may result in engine damage.

 

CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION

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.

Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the customer or anyone else harmed as a result of such failure. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

Inspect the pistons and, if necessary, replace the cylinder block, cylinder head, the air fuel ratio sensor, the secondary heated oxygen sensor, and the front and floor catalytic converters.
