2016 Honda HR-V Recalled for Missing Tire Information Label

WASHINGTON Honda is recalling 11,972 2016 Honda HR-V subcompact SUVs in the U.S. because they may be missing tire information labels, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"If the tire placard is missing, the driver or owner may not know at what pressure to inflate the tires, resulting in over or under tire inflation, which potentially increase the risk of a tire failure and crash," said NHTSA in its recall summary.

Honda said the HR-Vs also may be missing emissions-information labels.

The EPA and California Air Resources Board regulations require each vehicle to display an accurate emissions label. But the missing emissions label has no impact on vehicle safety.

No crashes or injuries have been linked to the recall. The problem was discovered through quality inspections, said Honda.

The affected HR-Vs were built from January 12, 2015 to May 20, 2015.

Honda dealers will inspect the vehicle and apply a new label. The recall is expected to begin on September 18. Owners can contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.

Edmunds says: This recall will entail a quick stop at your Honda dealer, so plan on taking care of this next month.
