Recall Alert: 2012 Honda Civic

086_2012_Civic_EX_L_Sedan_27
Honda is voluntarily recalling 157 model-year 2012 versions of the Civic sedan due to problems with the steering column.

In the affected vehicles, steering column tilt brackets designed for use on 2013 models were accidentally used in 2012 Civics. According to Honda, this could adversely affect the car's performance in a crash. "This issue was discovered during quality checks at the factory, and no crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue," the automaker said in a statement.

Honda will notify owners starting in early December, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009, option 4, or go online to www.recalls.honda.com for more information.
