Honda Recall Certain Civic Modals

March 14, 2018

Honda Ireland is taking recall action with regard to certain models of its 2017 Civic model series.

The trailer hitch (tow bar) vertical load value stated in the owner’s manual (OM) for these models does not comply with the European certified value:

1.0L models                                      OM value:   80kg               Certified value:      75kg

1.5L models                                      OM value: 100kg              Certified value:      75kg

Honda Ireland states that testing has been carried out to confirm that there is no safety concern associated with using the vertical load value stated in the defective OM.

The models in question are

Model Type Model Year VIN From VIN To
CIVIC FK6 2017 SHHFK6**0HU000101 SHHFK6**0HU017473
FK7 SHHFK7**0HU000101 SHHFK7**0HU013676
FK8 SHHFK8**0HU000101 SHHFK8**0HU002774


What to do

The owners of all affected vehicles will be contacted by mail and asked to take their vehicle to a Honda dealer or authorised repairer. The dealer will remove the old owner’s manual from the vehicle and replace it with a new one that contains the revised trailer hitch vertical load values. This work will be carried out at no cost to the owner.

This recall affects 629 vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.
