Universal Honda Limited recalls certain Honda passenger vehicles
January 29, 2020
Universal Honda Limited is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain models of its Honda HR-V, CR-V and Civic passenger vehicles.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between February 2015 and May 2018.
The safety issue identified, is that during repeated acceleration/deceleration, the emissions control system in the diesel Engine Control Unit (ECU) is unable to prevent sulphur accumulation on the catalyst surface due to lack of robustness of the engine control software. This reduces the purification performance of nitrogen oxides (NOx). Therefore, it does not satisfy the regulatory requirement for emissions levels.
The recall affects 2266 vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.
What to do:
Universal Honda Limited will directly contact all affected customers advising them to make an appointment with their local Honda Dealer or Authorised Repairer where any necessary software updates will be carried out.
