Honda recall affects 321,000 small SUVs and cars worldwide. CR-Vs from 2012 and Acura ILXs from 2013 make up the Honda recall.

If the inside driver or passenger door handles are used at the same time as the power or manual door locks, the inner door latch may not work. This means a door may not latch, or it could latch and open when the locks are used.

The company says no crashes or injuries have been reported because of the problem.
