1996 Honda Civic Recalls

Honda is recalling certain passenger vehicles because the accelerator pedal may feel rough or notchy when depressed, causing the vehicle not to respond properly when traveling at low speeds. Dealers will replace the throttle cable.

Honda has recalled certain 1996-1998 Civic accessory floor mats because they could become mispositioned on the floor, causing interference with the accelerator pedal. This could cause the accelerator pedal to stick. Dealers will install a positive floor mat retention system to secure proper fitment of the mats.

Honda has recalled certain 1996 Civics to repair a sticking brake booster check valve. If the check valve is sticking, power brake assist may not function. This could result in reduced braking performance, leading to a potential accident. Dealers will clean the check valve by washing the vacuum hose with hot water.
