Sept. 13, 2012—Honda recalled 2012 Ridgeline vehicles that were manufactured on April 18, 2012, because an incorrect status indicator for the passenger air bag indicator might have been installed. Without the proper passenger air bag indicator, the driver and other vehicle occupants wouldn’t be aware that the front passenger air bag is off and won’t deploy in a crash, which could increase the risk of injury to the front-seat occupant.
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the status indicator free. The safety recall is expected to begin Sept. 21, 2012.
Owners may call Honda at 800/999-1009. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
