As compared with the latest Toyota and GM recalls, Honda Fit recall is quite a small one. The recall affects nearly 1,038 Honda Fit hatchbacks from 2013 model-year. The vehicles were manufactured between May 24 and July 5, 2013. The cars under recall are all equipped with manual transmission.
The problem with the aforementioned vehicles is that the passenger-side driveshaft may break. This condition may occur because of a manufacturing mistake. The vehicle may lose power, if the driveshaft breaks during the drive. This condition may increase the risk of an accident and further injuries. However, it should be noted that the automaker is not aware of any crashes or fatalities due to the problem.
Honda will notify all the affected owners starting with June 15, 2014. Honda dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the defective passenger-side driveshafts free of charge. Concerned customers may contact the automaker at 800-999-1009 for more information about Honda Fit recall.
