The airbag-related concern is over to its deploying and this is why the company is recalling 118,598 CR-Vs which were manufactured in 2019.

A probe into the problem started in January and bring into being about this through the recall documents which says that the metal core of the steering wheel brings together on impacted cars might hold burrs. These burrs could harm the cable reel sub-harness and leads to short-circuit, possibly causing an out of action steering wheel- control buttons, SRS warning indicator, and improper positioning of the car driver’s airbag.

Recently in May, the company has got 41 warranty dues, three injuries reported, 20 field stories, and no reports of smashes causing from the problem that has initiated the fresh recall.
