RepairPal Expert Overview
The driver's side driveshaft may not have been properly installed during vehicle assembly.
Honda will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning June 21, 2012. An abnormal noise or vibration may be noted while driving; however, in most cases, there may be no symptoms related to this recall. If you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It’s helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
During vehicle assembly, the process required to properly seat the driver's side driveshaft and its retaining clip may not have been completed. As a result, the driveshaft may separate. If this occurs, the vehicle will have a loss of drive power and may roll away if the parking brake has not been applied, increasing the risk of a crash or pedestrian injury. Dealers will inspect the driver's side driveshaft and replace it as needed. The Honda recall number is S40.
