Honda to recall 1500 Civic in US

Japanese car manufacturer, Honda is in trouble again. Earlier today, Honda Motors stated that they will be recalling approximately 1500 of their Civic sedans and compacts which were sold in US earlier this year. The affected Civic sedans, in question here, reportedly have a fuel leak risk which could cause fire and subsequently engulf the car in flames.

Honda Motors have recalled Civic sedans which were assembled between 21st April 2011 and 2nd May 2011. A total of 1,156 Civic sedans and 377 Civic compacts have been issued a recall.

Honda Civic is in great demand in the United States, but currently it is facing trouble meeting its demand. Due to the 11th March Tsunami which swept the Japanese East coast earlier this year, Toyota Motors are still recovering from the aftermath.

Honda Motors US will notify their customers who have been sold the affected Civic sedans and compacts by next week. Notified customers will need to bring their car to an authorized Honda service outlet where the issue will be fixed free of cost. No injury or accident has been reported due to this defect.
