Honda recalls 2016 Civic in the United States

Honda recalls 2016 Civic in the United States


Honda cars in the United States has issued a recall for the 2016 Honda Civic saloon to correct a problem with the piston.

Honda has revealed that it will recall 42,129 units of the 2016 Civic saloon that came equipped with the 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. These Civic saloons came off the production line between September 22, 2015 and February 3, 2016, and the car maker highlighted that the problem is isolated to the Civic saloon only and not the Civic coupe.

Honda has added that the affected Civic saloons have engines with piston assemblies that may have been put together without a piston wrist pin circlip or with an incorrectly installed piston wrist pin circlip. This ideally means that the piston wrist pin may not be secure, and could drift. If this happened, the engine’s cylinder could get damaged and cause the engine to seize which would ultimately increase the risk of a crash. Owners will be notified by Honda starting March 15, 2016 and dealers will replace the piston assemblies if applicable, at no cost. Replacement parts are expected to be available at dealerships by the summer of 2016. 

Honda India operations discontinued the Civic in 2012 and has currently not revealed any plans to revive it.
