Honda recalling 2012 Civic to look at driveshaft

MARKHAM, Ont. — Honda Canada is voluntarily recalling approximately 12,587 of its popular 2012 Civics in Canada. The carmaker wants to inspect and, if necessary, replace the left driveshaft which may not have been properly pressed into the CV joint during assembly. If the driveshaft separates from the joint, the engine will no longer propel the vehicle. The company says no accidents or injuries have been reported related to the issue. Honda says affected owners will be notified by mail beginning later this month and encouraged drivers to take their cars to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification. Owners may also be able to determine if their cars require repair by going to the Honda website or contacting the company.
