1998 Honda Civic Recalls

Honda Recalls Certain 1998-2007 Civic CNG Vehicles to Add Insulation for the CNG Tank

Honda recalled certain compressed natural gas (CNG) Civic vehicles to add insulation to the rear seat back. In the event of an interior fire, the CNG tank could become compromised due to uneven heating, preventing the pressure relief safety device from functioning as designed. If the tank heats and does not vent the contents, the tank could rupture and explode. Dealers will install the insulation to help protect the tank from uneven heating.

The Ignition Switch May Fail

The electrical contacts in the ignition switch may be worn. This may cause the engine to stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin by June 14, 2002.

Honda Recalls 1996-1998 Civic Accessory Floor Mats for Possible Accelerator Interference

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.

Rated
based on 4 customer reviews
I have had a 98 civic since 2000. It have just under 30,0000 miles on it when I purchased it. I have only had to do basic maintance work (oil changes, brakes, tires, tune up). Very good car.
its only good when its 2 years old. power windows is too slow, transmission feels a bit flimsy. engine oil leakage, power door locks doesn't work well. needs frequent maintenance. what a crap.
i have had a car like that last me for 8 years with only the usual mainents
