Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Right Driveshaft Recall: 2013-2014 Honda Fit


honda recall

MARKHAM, Ontario--June 9, 2014; Honda will voluntarily recall 360 units of 2013 and 2014 model-year Fit vehicles equipped with manual transmission in Canada to inspect and, if necessary, replace the right front driveshaft, free of charge. During production of the affected driveshaft assemblies, it is possible that the heat treatment process was not properly applied, resulting in the driveshafts not meeting design specification. An out-of-specification driveshaft may break while the vehicle is in motion, mostly likely when accelerating from a stop, resulting in loss of propulsion of the vehicle. A broken driveshaft may also allow the vehicle to roll away if the parking brake is not engaged while the vehicle is parked even if left in gear, increasing the risk of an accident.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin in early June, 2014. In addition to contacting customers by mail, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going to Honda Canada Recalls or by calling 1-888-9HONDA9.
