Honda is recalling about 143,000 Civic and Fit vehicles in the United States to correct a software problem that could cause the front wheels to lock up.
The recall includes model year 2014-2015 Civic vehicles and 2015 Fit vehicles.
The way the vehicles’ software is written high hydraulic pressure could subject the drive pulley shaft to high stress, causing the vehicle to lose acceleration or the front wheels to lock up while driving, increasing the risk of a crash, Honda said.
Honda said no crashes or injuries have been reported related to the software, which was discovered through the warranty claim process in the U.S.
Honda said notification will be mailed to customers beginning in mid-October. Owners of these vehicles can determine if their vehicles require repair now by going to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling 888-234-2138.
