- Approximately 31,000 vehicles are affected in Canada
- Rear frame area by the fuel tank will be inspected for corrosion and an appropriate remedy will be offered, for free
- No reported collisions or injuries related to this issue
Honda Canada will voluntarily recall approximately 31,000 Honda Ridgeline vehicles from the 2006-2014 model years to inspect and, as necessary, repair a portion of the rear frame, for free.
De-icing agents used to maintain the roadway, along with mud and dirt, could accumulate along the rear frame, where the fuel tank is mounted. Over time, the accumulated de-icing agents/mud/dirt mixture could cause the frame mounting surface, where the fuel tank mounting bands are attached, to corrode and possibly separate from the frame. If this occurs, an unsecured fuel tank can become damaged from undercarriage impact, which can possibly result in fuel leakage.
No fuel leaks, fires, collisions or injuries have been reported in relation to this issue.
Depending on the level of corrosion found during the dealer inspection, a variety of potential remedies will be applied, for free, including repairs and reinforcement of components. If the level of corrosion is deemed beyond practical repair, Honda will explore repurchase of vehicles on a case-by-case basis.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage each owner of an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to owners will begin in early August 2022. Owners of all units manufactured for the Canadian market can check if their vehicle is affected by visiting www.Honda.ca/recalls
