Honda Motor Company is issuing yet another recall with its vehicles due to a potential fire hazard. This time the auto manufacturer is recalling approximately 1,200 of its Honda Civic model year 2012 vehicles because of a potential misaligned seal in the fuel line.
The National Highway Safety Administration announced that the misaligned fuel line can cause a fuel leak, which can result in a fire.
Approximately two months ago, Honda announced a separate recall with its Honda Civics. That recall was for the company’s model year 2011 Honda Civic vehicles that had faulty fuel valves. In March 2011, the company announced that if the affected vehicles were involved in a roll-over crash, fuel may leak from the gasoline tank and a fire can result. Both the Japanese automaker and the National Highway Safety Administration announced that the faulty fuel valves may have been damages as a result of improper welding during the production of the vehicles.
To date, no crashes or injuries have been reported.
Honda will repair all 2011 and 2012 model year Civics at no cost to consumers. Authorized Honda dealerships will inspect the vehicles and make the necessary repairs and/or replacements.
If you own one of the affected vehicles, you can call Honda directly at 1-800-999-1009 or go to www.recalls.honda.com for additional information.
