NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V663
Manufacturer Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Components STEERING
Potential Number of Units Affected 54

 

Magnet Becomes Dislodged Reducing Steering Ability

The unintended steering input reduces vehicle maneuverability and increases the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Honda Civic and CR-V vehicles. The magnet that controls the torque sensor output signal for the electronic power steering system may not be properly secured, allowing the magnet to become dislodged. During a full lock turn, the dislodged magnet may cause steering assist to be applied in the opposite direction.

 

Remedy

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering gearbox assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 5, 2018. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda’s numbers for this recall are C2N, P2O.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
