Honda Motor Co. Ltd. is set to resume sales of its CR-V models in China after the country's watchdog approved the Japanese automaker's revised recall plan, the Nikkei Asian Review reported May 17.
The recalls, which will begin May 22, involve about 130,000 units of the sports utility vehicle that were produced by the company's joint venture partner Dongfeng Motor Group Co. Ltd. These units were manufactured between February 2017 and February 2018, the report added.
The Tokyo-based company stopped selling the CR-V in China after the quality control agency rejected its first recall plan. The model had been flagged for a cold-climate engine issue.
Citing China's quality watchdog, the report added that the new recall plan was approved because the replaced parts and updated engine control unit software could withstand different temperature conditions.
Honda reportedly also plans to recall other models that have the same engine as the CR-V.
