However, since the recall affects Honda vehicles worldwide, there is a limited supply of replacement parts from the source. Accordingly, dealers shall formulate and strictly implement an appointment schedule for the replacement of the battery once parts become available.
Below is the table of information of the affected vehicles:

HCPI apologizes for any inconvenience caused to owners of these vehicles and assures that this voluntary safety recall campaign is conducted to ensure their safety.
