Honda Recall More Of Its Vehicles, This Time The 2017 Ridgeline Pickup Truck

Honda Motors Corporation issued an announcement to recall their 2017 Ridgeline pickup trucks. The decision was made after 400 warranty claims that involved irregular manufacturing of the wiring harness. The electrical component was manufactured and supplied by Delphi Automotive.
