Honda is recalling 172,000 crossovers and luxury sedans because of a problem with the vehicle door locks to the door open can come while driving.

The recall has affect two latest models of the manufacturer, which redesigned 2012 CR-V crossover utility vehicle and the all-new Acura ILX entry-luxury sedan. It is the latest in a series of problems, to deal with the Honda in the last few months, after the manufacturer had led the list to individual callbacks 2011.

According to a statement from the company "simultaneous operation the driver or passenger side inner door handle and either manual or power door lock the inner door handle release cable can always partially switched lead." If this happens, the door does not lock and the door can lock when closed and close but then open, if the door locks can be operated "The affected doors can unexpectedly lead both."

This could happen, not only, if the vehicle is still but also, when it is in motion.

The recall extends 166,000 2012 model year CR-vs. The crossover is one of the mainstays of the Honda line up and last year was completely revised. Also affected 6,200 Acura ILXs, the entry-level sedan of the manufacturers for 2013 are added.

Honda says that still reported but federal law quick action, requires when a security issue of a manufacturer is detected, even if not it reported particular problems of owners were no accidents or injuries.

It may be that a key factor in what some analysts describe as a significant time in the number of callbacks in the last few months. Federal authorities once allowed manufacturers to decide whether some safety issues could easily justify repairs if reported by the owner of Toyota during the great security scandal crack in 2009 and 2010 have been down.

Both producers, traditionally known have seen since a rise in the recalls for bullet-proof quality and reliability. By some activities last minute suggested to just Honda, Toyota, which is reminiscent of dubious honor of production than any other car manufacturer 2011. She has announced more than half a dozen additional recalls problems in 2012 for matters of headlights until problems with the Struts hold the rear hatches and leaking gas tank.

The manufacturer plans to inform owners of the latest door lock problem in the coming weeks. Repairs are provided free of charge.
