It's the fourth recall of Ridgeline trucks in 2024

Honda is recalling as many as 187,290 of its Ridgeline pickup trucks manufactured from Nov. 2019 to April 2024, citing how the rearview camera can stop working. 

"The rearview camera (RVC) tailgate wire harness may fatigue and break, which can prevent the rearview camera image from displaying," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said, adding that the issue can increase the risk of a crash.

This is the Japanese automaker's third recall for its Ridgeline trucks this year, and 34th recall since 2010, according to NHTSA data. The 2024 Honda Ridgeline has a safety rating of five stars from the NHTSA.

Honda has recalled an average of around 1.4 million vehicles every year since 1968, coming below the average of 1.5 million vehicles from top-selling Japanese carmaker Toyota.

Ridgeline owners can go to dealerships to get the tailgate wire harness replaced for free. Honda can be reached at 888-234-2138. Honda's number for the recall is YI7.
