Recall Notice : 2006-2007 Honda Civic Sedans

2006-honda-civic-sedan Honda just put out a recall of over 180,000 Civic Sedans, which includes model years 2006 and 2007. Yikes. Most of the recalls that I post about here are from the domestic side, so it’s interesting to see such a large recall from a company like Honda. Toyota has suffered through it’s share of high-profile recalls lately, and still maintained their image though. So I doubt this recall, even though it is huge, will adversely affect Honda’s reputation.

Anyway enough chatter. What’s the recall for? Oh, nothing major… just a faulty wheel bearing that could cause one of the wheels to fall off. You know, fall of the car, as in while you’re driving. If that isn’t scary, then you need to get your head checked.

Honda will be sending out the usual letters to the affected owners. If you’re worried, call your dealer for more information. For the rest of us, I’d advise following late-model Civics at a safe distance for awhile, and keep your eyes open for flying wheels.
