A total of 50,000 units have been affected by the recall in the U.S.
Honda Motor Co Ltd is conducting a voluntary safety recall of certain 2012 Honda Civic sedan over concerns about a potentially faulty driveshaft assembly that could lead to loss of engine power.
The driver's side driveshaft might have been improperly assembled possibly allowing it to separate from a joint, while the car is running, which could lead to the engine no longer propelling the vehicle in any gear. Affected cars might also roll away, while parked if the parking brake isn't engaged.
The Japanese automaker said that they will inspect and if required, will replace the driver's side driveshaft. Honda will begin notifying its customers via mail by the end of June, at which time they can take their cars to the local dealers and to get the issue addressed.
So, far no crashed or injuries have been reported related to the aforementioned issue. A total of 50,000 units of the compact sedan have been affected by the recall in the United States.
