Kayla Jackson5 years ago

Honda is recalling more than 50,000 2012 Civic vehicles due to a faulty driveshaft which could separate from the car, causing loss of drive power and increasing the chance of a crash.

Driveshaft May Separate from Car

  • The driveshaft runs underneath the vehicle and connects the engine to the gears that control the vehicles’ wheels.
  • In affected Honda Civil models, there is a possibility that the driveshaft will separate from the car and cause a loss of drive power.
  • This could also cause the vehicle to roll if the parking brake is not selected, increasing the likelihood of a crash.

  • Dealers will inspect and replace driveshafts free of charge.
  • Replacements will begin June 21, 2012.
