Honda Civic (2005 – 2014)

Published on 02. 05. 2022

Problem description:

The drive shafts installed in the vehicles concerned were coated with a lubricant which accelerates the wearing of the protective layer covering them, making them more susceptible to damage caused by road debris.

Furthermore, grit containing de-icing agents used to maintain the roads could accumulate in damaged parts of the drive shafts, increasing corrosion and the risk of breaking at high torque. Both situations increase the risk of accident/injury for passengers and other road users.

The Honda Civic vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 23 August 2005 and 6 November 2014.

Honda recall code: 6DY, 6DZ
Affected models: Accord, Acura, Fit, Civic – U.S.-specific vehicles only
Vehicle numbers (worldwide): 579,513

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Honda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
