Honda SUV Recall Issued Over Side Mirrors Which May Fall Off

Defective adhesive can result in side mirrors falling off and posing a risk of a car accident.

Federal highway officials have announced a recall of more than 300,000 Honda vehicles that are equipped with defective side view mirrors, which may detach during normal operation of the vehicle, increasing the risk of an auto accident.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced the Honda mirror recall on March 9, indicating that the adhesive tape used to attach the heater pad in the left and right side view mirrors to the back plate did not have sufficient strength.

As a result, the heater pad can detach from the back plate of the mirror while driving, causing the mirror glass to fall, which can affect the driver’s visibility.

While no injuries have been reported in relation to the recall, there were 71 warranty claims received by Honda from May 2020 through October 2022 that were related to the defective adhesive. The recall impacts approximately 330,318 vehicles produced from January 3, 2020 through July 23, 2021 and includes the following make and model years;

  • 2020 through 2021 Honda Pilot
  • 2020 through 2022 Honda Passport
  • 2020 through 2021 Honda Ridgeline
  • 2020 through 2022 Honda Odyssey

Honda initially became aware of the issue and started investigating a trend observed involving vibrations of the mirrors in December 2018, and subsequently changed the adhesive tape used in July 2021. According to market data, the improved adhesive tape has resolved detachment of the mirrors.

Authorized Honda dealers will notify registered owners of the recalled vehicles on May 8, 2023, and will provide free replacement of the left and right mirror holder assemblies. Owners who have already had their vehicles repaired qualify for reimbursement through the recall reimbursement plan filed with the NHTSA.
