This recall affects approximately 725,000 vehicles

Honda is recalling around 725,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to concerns that their hoods might pop open while they drive.

The company sent a notice Friday to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stating that it was recalling 2019 Honda Passports and 2016-2019 Pilots as well as Ridgeline trucks of model years 2017 through 2020 because of a hood problem.

The automaker states that the hood latch striker could become damaged or separate from the body of the hood. This can lead to the hood opening during driving.
