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