There has been a major recall of Honda and Acuras, including ones sold in New York state. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there is a risk that the affected models may even stall while driving, due to a faulty equipment issue.

ABC says the move comes just after a recall of more than 106,000 2020-2022 CR-V hybrid vehicles due to a "missing fuse on the power circuit of exterior 12-Volt battery cables."

According to Consumer Reports, the missing fuse could cause cables to overheat or short-circuit in a crash.
