Honda Civic Recalled

Honda Civic Years: 2000-2001

Number Involved: 16,459

Dates of Manufacture: July -- September 2000

Noncompliance: Some sedans and coupes fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, ``Seat Belt Assemblies.'' Certain rear seat belt buckles were improperly manufactured. The rear seat belts will work properly and provide protection in a crash, but the owner may experience difficulty unfastening the belt after the crash. Only buckles that are marked (on the back side of the buckle) with an assembly number beginning with 00185, 00186, or 00187 have the problem.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the seat belt assemblies that were improperly manufactured. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during January 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
