Honda plans to recall 2002-2004 Honda CR-V and 2003 Honda Pilot SUVs next month. According the company, about 554,000 of the Honda sport-utility vehicles have wiring faults that may fail to to turn on the front low beam headlights.

While there have been no reports of injuries due to the Honda SUVs' wiring flaws, the lack of proper illumination increases the risk of a collision, said the company.

This safety recall has yet to be acknowledged by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). However, Honda says it will mail notifications in late April to CR-V and Pilot owners customers affected by this safety recall. They will be instructed to bring their recalled Honda SUVs to local dealerships where the necessary corrective repair work will be performed, free of charge.

For more information, consumers can call Honda's toll-free customer support line (800-999-1009, select option 4) or go online to Honda's recall website: www.recalls.honda.com.
