Recall Setback for 2016 Honda Civic

Award winning new Honda Civic faces U.S. recall over possible engine problem.

It has been winning acclaim and accolades right across North America, but the news out of Honda today is not so positive for the all-new Honda Civic Sedan.

The model, which will be in Australian dealerships this year, is being recalled in the U.S. and dealerships have reportedly been told to freeze sales of the model after it was found missing or miss-set piston rings could cause engines to stall or fail.

Honda USA spokesman, Chris Martin, telling that as many as 34,000 Honda Civic sedans will be recalled to fix the issue, though at this stage an official recall notice is yet to be released.

The news will come as a disappointment to Honda, particularly in the U.S., where tens of thousands of Honda cars have been recalled over the past 12 months or so to fix the well-publicised Takata air-bag fault.
