American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 279 model year 2021 Acura RDXs and model year 2022 CR-V Hybrids.
A component in the right or left front driveshaft may have been improperly heat-treated, which could result in driveshaft failure.
Driveshaft failure can cause a sudden loss of drive power or cause the vehicle to roll away when parked if the parking brake is not applied. Either condition can increase the risk of a crash or injury.
What to do
Dealers will replace the right or left front driveshaft -- as necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 24, 2022.
Owners may contact Honda customer service (888) 234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are BBY, NBW, and OBX.
