Honda Motor Company announced on Friday May 27th that they are now recalling over 1,156 Honda 2012 two-door and four-door Civics made between April 21st and May 2nd of this year. Many of the cars being recalled have not yet been sold, so Honda says that dealers will be repairing the defect before anymore are sold.
Honda is recalling the Civics because of a gas line that may be misaligned and could leak fuel, causing a fire hazard, though no injuries or fires have been reported in relation to the manufacturing defect as of yet. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said “There is a possibility that an O-ring, which seals a connection in the fuel feed line, is misaligned. If the O-ring is misaligned, a small fuel leak may occur.”
Honda will be fixing any affected Honda 2012 Civics for free.
