Recall Alert: 2014 Honda Civic


Vehicles Affected: Approximately 9,816 model-year 2014 versions of the Honda Civic LX sedan and coupe; only vehicles manufactured from Nov. 26, 2013, through Jan. 21, 2014, are affected.

The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that during the tire mounting process, the tire bead may have gotten pinched between the assembly equipment and the steel wheel rims. This could damage the tire and cause it to leak air, increasing the risk of an accident.

"Honda has not received any warranty claims, field reports or injuries related to this issue," the automaker said in a statement to NHTSA.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace any damaged tires for free.

What Owners Should Do: Honda has already started notifying owners. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.

Honda Announces New Display and Connectivity Systems


Honda refreshed its Civic sedan for 2013, with a focus on exterior changes; the automaker is concentrating on connectivity systems on the updated 2014 Civic. It announced two new features that will debut on the sedan: the Display Audio touch-screen and the next generation of the HondaLink application-based platform.

Honda says the Display Audio touch-screen, which we got a close look at during the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, offers the largest screen in the class and brings smartphone-like functionality inside the vehicle. Drivers use phonelike pinches, swipes and taps to access audio, phonebook, media, vehicle information and navigation features. Pandora internet radio is built into the interface, and functions like giving a song a thumbs-up or viewing the album art can be done via the screen.
