Among the eighty-one (81) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - American Honda Motor Co.American Honda Motor Co. (“Honda”), a Torrance, California establishment and a subsidiary of Honda Motor Company of Tokyo, Japan, has recalled all 28,885 Honda Genuine Accessory Tonneau Covers, part number 08Z07-T6Z-100F, sold for installation on 2017-2020 Ridgeline Trucks marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Equipment – Tonneau Cover Panel may detach from vehicle

NHTSA Safety Notification 20E068000 reports if the vehicle’s Tonneau Cover is not properly secured in the open or closed position, wind resistance may cause the Cover to flip and buckle. If this occurs, the hinges between the center and rear panel may deform, possibly allowing the rear panel to separate from the vehicle.

According to the NHTSA, a separated Tonneau Cover may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash, MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results.

Honda will notify all registered owners of 2017-2020 Honda Ridgelines, and dealers will install tethers onto any Honda Genuine Accessory Tonneau Cover to prevent panel separation and apply warning labels, free of charge. In addition, an updated accessory user’s information manual will be provided. The recall is expected to begin October 26, 2020.

Owners may contact Honda Customer Service toll-free at 1-888-234-2138 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Pacific Standard Time (“PST”). Honda’s designation for this recall is F8M.
