What Should You Do?
This is considered a medium priority recall, which would change to high if any problems are noticed with the operation of the front window glass. For more information, contact your Honda dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
The driver and/or front passenger window may come off track, which can cause the glass to fall into the door. As a result, the glass may shatter, increasing the risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the affected window glass. This recall is to begin by April 15, 2011. The Honda recall numbers are R73 and R74.
