Owners of 2006-2007 Honda Civic Hybrids should keep an eye on their mailboxes. Honda is recalling 36,700 of these vehicles to replace the DC to DC converter. This part of the IMA hybrid system is responsible for charging the 12 volt battery.
The faulty unit that some of these vehicles has could fail, causing your vehicle to stall. Not a big deal if you’re crusing around town, but potentially a disaster at highway speeds. In any case, Honda is issuing the recall, and if your vehicle is affected you should know within the next few weeks.
