My dealer has not mentioned the recall on the side steps. Is there some way to get the information so we can pass it on to our dealers. I want to get my side steps changed as soon as possible if there is a recall.

My close friend is connected with Honda--I just got the side steps before the "stop sell"--not a true recall--apparently, the side steps have a weld location at each end/on each end cap--up in the northeast, the salt on the roads was coroding the welds and the outer paint coating was coming off--Honda is addressing it at this time and customers supposedly will be contacted for a replacement--i have no timeframes

my biggest problem is not so much the corrosion, living in Florida. The side steps are hollow so when you hit a puddle, you hear the pinging sounds that tend to really be annoying

I ordered my steps from a dealer in deliware that sent my money back. He said honda was recalling. The steps were making noise in the rain, chipping at the welds and loosing powdercoating. He said I could still get the black running boards but no the steps.

Gee, it's only been 5 months since the dealer and I lodged my complaint. I hope they fix it rather than cancel production..............
Thanks for the info!

:( I just had the silver side step put on my Ridgeline two weeks ago and the Dealer said nothing to me about having any problems. I will check tomorrow and repost any information I receive.

Glad they are finally addressing. I spoke with Honda about how noisy they side steps were with puddles 3 months ago and they had never heard the issue before (ha!). Thanks to all of you that also called Honda and now hopefully we will get this annoyance corrected!
