TORRANCE, Calif. (Dec. 5, 2017) — American Honda Motor Co., Inc. is recalling roughly 5,400 model-year 2017 Honda Civic sedans and coupes due to a problem that could cause a roll away or engine problem that could prevent the vehicle from moving.
The automaker says the right half-shaft installed in these vehicles may be weak because it may have been improperly heat-treated. This could lead to a potential for the shaft to break off and if this should happen the vehicle wouldn’t move forward. Additionally, if the parking brake is not engaged, the vehicle could roll away.
Honda dealerships are asking owners of these vehicles to bring them in for inspection. They will determine if the half-shaft’s serial number is among those listed for replacement. Honda will also align the vehicle’s wheels for free.
On December 15, Honda will notify owners of affected vehicles.
