Recall roundup: Honda Civic for tire problem

Honda has announced a recall for several Civic LX coupes and sedans from the 2014 model year because of a potential problem with its tires.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 9,816 units of the Civic LX coupes and sedans will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a potential tire problem.

“During a supplier’s assembly of the tires onto the wheels, the tires may have been pinched between the assembly equipment and the vehicle’s steel wheel rims, creating a tear. A tear in the bead of the tire could result in rapid air loss in the tire, making the vehicle more difficult to maneuver and increasing the risk of a crash”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

The affected Honda Civic LX vehicles have been produced between the 26th of November 2013 and the 21st of January 2014. The company’s dealership network will inspect and replace any damaged tire free of charge. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified by the carmaker soon but they can also contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236. The recall has began on the 28th of March, 2014.
