Honda Civic recalls

 

For Models: Honda Civic, Honda Civic Hybrid, Honda Civic Si

Engine, October 13, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled a low volume of 2008-2009 Civic sedans for a possible missing nut on the fuel hose connector bracket. In the event of an accident, the bracket could become loose, causing damage to the fuel hose connector, which could cause a fuel leak. Dealers will install the missing nut on the affected units.

For Models: Honda Civic

Engine, November 15, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Honda Civic

Electrical & Lights, October 2, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Honda Civic

Brakes, September 25, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 2006-2007 Civic vehicles for a mounting problem of a sealing O-ring on the rear anti-lock brake system speed sensors. If installed incorrectly, the O-ring will not seal properly, allowing contamination past it and possibly damaging the rear wheel bearings. There is potential for a rear wheel to come off the vehicle if the bearing is worn severely enough. Dealers will inspect the rear anti-lock brake system sensors for proper installation and the rear wheel bearings for damaged parts. Repairs will be made to prevent contamination entry, and to replace any damaged components.

For Models: Honda Civic

Body, Interior & Misc., August 25, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 2006 2-Door Civic models because the rear window or rear quarter windows did not adhere properly to the vehicle. This is due to improper window opening preparation at the time of glass installation. The glass may become loose and cause a safety hazard while the vehicle is in operation. Owners can return to their local Honda dealership to remove the affected glass and properly prepare the window opening for glass re-installation.

For Models: Acura MDX, Acura RL, Acura RSX, Acura TL, Acura TSX, Honda Accord, Honda CR-V, Honda Civic, Honda Element, Honda Fit, Honda Insight, Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Honda Ridgeline

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.

For Models: Honda Civic

Body, Interior & Misc., January 16, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 2006 model Civic vehicles for a potential failure of the front passenger occupant detection system. In certain cases, the detection system will not suppress front passenger air bag deployment when there is a small child or infant in the front passenger seat. If deployment occurs with a small child or infant in the front passenger seat, the risk of injury could increase. Dealers will replace the occupant detection system unit free of charge.

For Models: Honda Civic

Drive Train, November 14, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 2006 Civic models for improper installation and mounting of the accelerator pedal. The accelerator pedal may become detached from its mounting, causing the throttle to stick, which can create a potential safety hazard. Dealers will reset the accelerator pedal or replace the whole assembly free of charge.

For Models: Honda Civic

Body, Interior & Misc., November 24, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 2004-2005 Civic models for inspection of the front seat belt anchors. Some front seat belt anchors may exhibit restricted movement due to an incorrect washer installed. This restricted movement may cause improper positioning of the seat belt, which could increase the risk of occupant injury in a crash. Dealers will inspect the seat belt anchors for restricted movement and replace the affected washer if necessary.

For Models: Honda Civic, Honda Insight

Electrical & Lights, April 5, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda recalled certain 2000-2002 Civic and Insight vehicles due to a low beam headlight issue. On affected models, the low beam terminal on the headlight switch wiring harness could overheat, causing the loss of low beam headlight function. Low beam head lamps that fail to operate can lead to a higher risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the headlight switch and wiring connector for signs of heat damage. If damage is present, the dealer will replace the switch and wiring connector. If no damage is present, the dealer will replace the headlight switch and one of the terminal pins in the wiring connector.
