Honda Announces Recall of Small Number of Civics for Steering Column Problem
"The steering column may not have proper energy-absorbing characteristics, which could increase the risk of injury during a vehicle crash," explains NHTSA.
Honda advises owners of these cars to return to the dealer to have their vehicle inspected; if necessary, the tilt brackets will be replaced with the correct component at no charge.
Owners of vehicles being recalled may contact NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to http://www.safercar.gov. Refer to the NHTSA campaign ID No. 12V548000.
