Honda to Recall 45,335 Civic Hybrids
9 February 2007
Honda will recall 45,335 Civic Hybrid sedans worldwide to repair a defect in the DC/DC converter that could cause a short circuit that would stop the engine.
The problem apparently is that the weight of a passenger on the rear seat backrest could bend the wiring terminal, potentially damaging the insulation and causing the short.
Honda will recall 7,219 of the vehicles sold in Japan and another 38,116 sold overseas, mostly in the US. Cars affected are the entire production from the period 9 Sep 2005 to 2 Sep 2006.
