article imageHonda recalls 50,000 Civic cars in U.S.

By Owen Weldon     Jun 13, 2012 in Business
On Wednesday Honda Motor Co Ltd said that 50,000 Civic small cars will be recalled in the United States from the 2012 model.
The reason why the motor company is recalling the cars is for a potential issue with the way the driveshaft was assembled. The driveshaft could potentially cause the engine to lose power.
According to Reuters, Honda said that if it is needed, then they will replace the side driveshaft located on the driver's side.
According to New York Times, two and four-door models will be covered by the recall. In addition to the 50,000 vehicles in the US, another 14,000 vehicles, located outside of the states, are being recalled.
According to Inside Line, as of now Honda has not gotten any claims that allege death or injury as a result of the issue. However, Honda did say that they received 23 claims as a result of the problem. This was as of May 24, 2012.
Owners of the vehicle can contact Honda directly if they have any questions. The recall will begin on June 21.
