Honda is recalling around 118,600 Pioneer 700 and 1000 recreational off-road vehicles (ROVs) because they can lose steering control.

No injuries or accidents were reported, but Honda said it received 8 reports of the ROVs suffering loss of steering control, or having play in the steering.

The recall includes the 2017-2019 and certain 2020 model-year Honda Pioneer 700 vehicles.

The recall also includes the 2016-2019 and certain 2020 model-year Honda Pioneer 1000 side-by-side vehicles with Electric Power Steering (EPS).

They were sold by Honda Powersports dealers nationwide from August 2015 to March 2020 for approximately $10,000-$21,000.

Honda is asking consumers to stop using the recalled ROVs and contact an authorized Honda Powersports dealer to schedule an appointment for a free inspection and repair, if necessary

Honda dealers will inspect the Lower Steering Joint B for a potential defect that can cause the vehicle to lose steering control, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
