2012 Honda Civic faces limited recall for possible fuel leakFri, 20 May 2011
Honda is recalling 1,156 copies of the redesigned 2012 Civic because of a potential fuel leak.
A mechanical seal in the fuel line on some vehicles was misplaced during assembly, leaving a gap where two segments of pipe attach and allowing for the potential of leakage.
No injuries or fires have been reported in relation to the glitch, and most of the affected vehicles are still in inventory and will be fixed before going up for sale.
Honda will start notifying owners of the faulty cars on May 27, encouraging them to take their cars to dealerships to get them checked out. Owners can also get more information on the 2012 Honda Civic recall at www.recalls.honda.com.
