Recall Alert: 2012 Honda Civic


(Cars.com)

Honda said it is voluntarily recalling about 50,000 model-year 2012 versions of the Civic compact sedan due to problems with the left driveshaft.

In the affected vehicles, the driver-side driveshaft may not have been assembled properly, and it could separate from the CV joint during driving. This could lead to loss of vehicle control unless the parking brake is applied. Honda says no related crashes or injuries have been reported.

"Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda," the automaker said in a statement.

Honda will begin notifying owners later this month, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or visit www.recalls.honda.com for more info.
