Honda is recalling certain sedan and coupe models for failing to comply with federal safety standards on seat belt assemblies. Certain rear seat belt buckles were improperly manufactured, which may cause the seat belts to be difficult to unfasten after a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt assemblies free of charge.
Honda Civic Recalls
Honda recalled certain 2001-2002 Civic vehicles for a concern with the air cleaner box. During the assembly process, the air cleaner box cover could have been damaged, potentially sending plastic debris into the intake chamber. This may cause the throttle to stick in the partially open position, which can cause a loss of throttle control while driving. Dealers will inspect the air cleaner box for damage, remove any broken pieces found, and replace the air cleaner box lid.
Honda recalled certain 2001 Civic vehicles for possible corrosion of the fuel pump wiring harness connector. Water may have been left inside the wiring connector during testing. Corrosion in the wiring connector could cause fuel pump failure, which can cause a vehicle to stall without warning. Dealers will inspect for corrosion at the fuel pump. If corrosion is found, the fuel pump will be replaced.
Honda recalled certain 2001 Civic vehicles to inspect the hose clamps on the fuel filler neck for looseness. In a collision, the filler tube could disconnect from the fuel tank, causing fuel leakage and a fire hazard. Dealers will check the hose clamps for proper tightness and fasten them as necessary.
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 recalled certain 1997-1995 Civics due to improper assembly of the cloth flaps that cover the folded air bag. The cloth flaps were found to be tucked in too far, which could prevent proper deployment of the air bag. This could result in an injury in the event of a collision. Dealers will repair the front passenger air bag module.
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.
