About 1.2 million Honda vehicles are being recalled due to a faulty backup camera — the image may not appear on the dashboard screen.
The recall affects certain Odyssey minivans from 2018to 2023, as well as Pilot SUVs from 2019 to 2022 and Passport SUVs from 2019 to 2023.
In documents posted Friday by U.S. Safety Regulators, the problem was traced to a faulty coaxial cable connector. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says if the rear view camera image doesn’t display, it can cut driver visibility and increase the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace a cable harness and install a straightening cover at no cost to owners, who will be notified by mail starting July 24.
Honda said it has received nearly 274,000 warranty claims from May 2017 through June 8.
There has been no reports of injuries.
