Honda is recalling over 700,000 vehicles due to a defect that could result in the hood opening while the vehicle is in operation.

CarAndDriver.com reports that the recall affects 724,826 vehicles including Passport, Pilot, and Ridgeline models. The vehicles were manufactured with a defective hood latch that could become damaged, separating it from the hood and potentially allowing the hood to pop open while the vehicle is in motion.

The defect is so serious that Honda ordered dealers to stop sales on the vehicles on November 30. Honda has instructed dealers to inspect the vehicles' hood latches and replace them when necessary.

The report does not indicate whether any injuries have resulted from the defect.
