What’s the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall began on Feb. 1, 2021, and affects:
- 2013-2015 Acura ILX
- 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid
- 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid
- 2007-2008 Honda Fit
- 2009-2014 Honda Fit
Only vehicles that were originally sold, or ever registered, in the following states are included the recall: Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
The drive shafts’ protective coating may not have been applied properly on affected vehicles during production, making it prone to damage by road salt or other contaminants, potentially causing it to break, NHTSA said. A broken drive shaft may cause a sudden loss of drive power, and the vehicle could also roll away if the parking brake has not been applied before the vehicle has been exited.
“Either condition can increase the risk of a crash or injury,” NHTSA said.
If you purchased a vehicle that is affected by this recall, you should stop driving it immediately and contact your local Honda dealer to schedule a free repair.
Honda’s numbers for this recall are E9B and A9A.
