Recall Alert: 2015-2016 Honda Fit LX – Rear Grab Rail Bracket

Honda will voluntarily recall 25,367 model-year 2015-2016 Fit LX vehicles in the United States to replace the rear grab rail brackets. The rear grab rail brackets in certain Fit LX trim vehicles were not manufactured to Honda’s design specifications. In the event of a collision that triggers a side curtain airbag deployment, the rear grab rail brackets may interfere with the airbag deployment, increasing the risk of passenger injury. No market occurrences have been reported related to this issue, which was discovered during internal testing.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage each owner of an affected vehicle to take it to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin in early December, 2015. Additionally, owners of these vehicles can now determine if their vehicles will require repair by going to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (888) 234-2138.
