Safety Recall: 2019-20 CR-V Rear Subframe Bolts

 

AFFECTED VEHICLES

Year Model Trim VIN Range
2019- 20 CR-V ALL Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.

 

BACKGROUND

There were some rear subframe bolts that were improperly manufactured without a wax solution. This will not allow the bolts to be secured properly when installed into the rear subframe, causing the bolts to possibly loosen, or fall off. If they loosen or fall off, the rear subframe may separate and may disable the vehicle, increasing the risk of a collision.

 

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 safety recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

Inspect the front two bolts on the rear subframe. Based on the results, either replace the front two bolts or all four bolts on the rear subframe.
