Å small number—just over 200—Honda Ridgeline pickup trucks are being recalled by America Honda Motor Co. According to the U.S. National Traffic Highway Safety Administration, those 2011 and 2012 model year pickups have incorrect information regarding their spare tires, which could lead to tire failure and cause a crash.
The NHTSA says that the data printed on the tire information placards, mandatory on all vehicles in the U.S., don't match the data for the Honda Ridgelines' actual spare tire—a violation of federal safety standards.
Honda says in a press release that it has begun notifying customers affected by this recall to bring their Ridgeline pickups to local dealerships. Mechanics there will inspect the spare tires and placards and replace either the tire or the placard for free,
