MANILA, Philippines - Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) on Thursday announced it was voluntarily recalling some 834 vehicles of its CR-V 2012 year model to replace the inner door handle and door latch.

The vehicles were sold in the Philippines between April to July 2012.

Honda said its findings showed that "if the manual or power door lock is activated while an interior front door handle is being opened by an occupant, the cable connecting the interior door handle to the door latch mechanism may become loose and move out of position."

The company noted there may be a possibility that "the cable can move far enough out of position to make the interior door handle inoperable." In extreme cases, the door can be prevented from properly latching, and may open while driving.

However, no crashes or injuries have been reported related to the issue.

Honda CR-V units with the following frame (VIN) numbers are included in the recall countermeasure:
