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.
Honda is recalling 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG models to address a concern about the excessive lubricant used for the telescoping steering column, which may drip onto and damage the brake light switch. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative and the shifter may not release from the "Park" position. Honda will replace the brake light switch and install a protective cover over the brake light switch free of charge.
