The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for the 2012 Civic model, because of a potential driveshaft assembly issue.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2012 Honda Civic models may have a problem with a potential driveshaft assembly, which might lead to the loss of engine power. The NHTSA is saying that about 50,000 units of the 2012 Honda Civic are affected by this recall and their owners will have to drive them back to the local dealers, who will inspect and, if needed, replace the driver’s driveshaft, which might have not been properly assembled.
Honda said that no reports about crashes or injuries have been related to this problem. Owners of the 2012 Honda Civic model in the United States will be notified by the car manufacturer this month and the recall will begin in late June. This isn’t the only recall which affected the Honda Civic and earlier this year, the 2009-2011 model has been recalled in China, because of a problem with the horn. During the same recall, the Honda CR-V had to be taken back to the dealers because of a similar issue. 459,962 units of the Honda CR-V and the Honda Civic were affected back then.
