Honda is recalling about 1,300 copies of the 2006 CR-V to inspect and possibly replace the right-front lower control arm.
Honda says that the part could have been made with an improper welding process. Over time the control arm could break at the weld. If that happens the steering would be affected, possibly resulting in a crash.
Honda will begin notifying owners in mid-April and is encouraging them to take their cars to an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Owners can find out if their cars are affected by going to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009.
Honda says no crashes or injuries have been reported that were related to the problem.
