(Tokyo) -- Honda is recalling over 560-thousand older-model crossover SUVs sold in cold-weather states.

The Japanese carmaker says an accumulation of road salt can cause part of the vehicles' suspension to corrode and possibly detach, which could lead to a crash.

Honda says the recalled vehicles are model-year 2007-to-2011 CR-Vs sold in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest states.

Owner notification letters will be mailed next month.
