NHTSA

16V074 A16-017

SUMMARY:

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2016 Civic vehicles manufactured September 22, 2015, to February 3, 2016 and equipped with 2.0L engines.

The affected vehicles have engines with piston assemblies that may have been manufactured without a piston wrist pin circlip or with an incorrectly installed piston wrist pin circlip.

 

CONSEQUENCE:

If a circlip is missing or incorrectly installed, the piston wrist pin may not be secure and may drift and damage the engine cylinder causing the engine to seize, and increasing the risk of a crash or a fire.

 

REMEDY:

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the piston assemblies and damaged engine components, as necessary, free of charge.

Parts are expected to be available in the Summer of 2016.

Owners were mailed an interim notification beginning March 31, 2016, and will be mailed a second notice when parts are available.

Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138.

Honda’s number for this recall is JX9.

 

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.
