DETROIT (AP) - Honda says it is recalling more than 820,000 Civic compact cars and Pilot SUVs because the headlights can fail.

The recall affects Civics from the 2002 and 2003 model years and Pilots from 2004 and 2005.

The company says wires connecting a switch that controls the headlights and turn signals can overheat and melt, knocking out the low-beam headlights.

No crashes or injuries have been reported from the problem.

Honda says it will fix the wiring for free. The company began sending notices to owners in late September.

The Civics and Pilots were added to a similar recall announced in March. That recall affected more than 550,000 CR-V small SUVs from the 2002 through 2004 model years and Pilots from 2003.

Earlier this week, Honda announced a different recall of over 570,000 Accord and Acura TL models due to faulty power steering hoses.

          They are assembled here numb nuts. The parts are not though. We are paid to put them together, but all the profit goes to Japan. You are an idiot.

      My 2001 Civic had this recall 8 years ago. Too bad I never got the notice in the mail and I realized my headlights were dead at 2 am when I was leaving work late one night.

      your seeing an increase in the number of recalls for all of the japanese cars. Its not that theyre built worse, its the fact that they nolonger have the loyalty of their customers for service. Most issues thaat no force national recalls, were taken care of inhouse, called a silent recall...THATS RIGHT.
