Safety and Non-Compliance Recall: 2018 Civic Certification Label Missing Production Date
Supersedes 18-071, Non-Compliance Recall: 2018 Civic Certification Label Missing Production Date, dated June 15, 2018
|2018||Civic||ALL||Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.|
During manufacturing, the certification label was printed without the month and year. This causes the vehicle to be noncompliant with Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 567, “Certification.” In the event of a vehicle safety recall, an incorrect manufacturing date may prevent owners from determining if the recall affects them, increasing their risk of injury or a crash.
Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.
Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.
Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your new or used vehicle inventory.
Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the customer or anyone else harmed as a result of such failure. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this safety recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.
Replace the certification label.

- Open the driver’s door, and locate the certification label.
- Confirm the VIN on the dashboard matches the VIN on the new certification label.
- Use a heat gun and a plastic tool to remove the label. Be careful not to scratch or damage the paint.
- After the label is removed, using isopropyl alcohol on a lint free cloth, thoroughly clean the area where the new label will be attached. Make sure there is no residue from the old label, and allow the alcohol to dry.
- Apply the new certification label 5 mm below the striker. Make sure the label is applied in the same orientation as the removed label.
Make sure the label is properly applied to the body, and make sure there are no wrinkles, tears, or bubbles on the new label.
- As a secondary confirmation, have another person confirm the VIN on the new certification label with the VIN on the dashboard.
