Honda Stops Sale on 2016 Civics

Posted by: Lydia Siu onFebruary 3rd, 2016


Honda is stopping sales on their 2016 Civic that is sold with their 2.0L four cylinder engines due to a potential problem that may lead to early engine failures. Early reports indicate that the piston pin snap rings may have been improperly assembled and if it came loose could cause significant piston and internal damage to the 2.0L engine. This issue could potentially impact 34,000 Civics that were produced for the 2016 year.

Specific details have yet to be released, but Honda intends to notify NHTSA officially on February 5, said Chris Martin Spokesperson for Honda. Once finalized with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda will release an official statement to the general public about the recall in March. What is know at this time is that the issue is isolated to the 2.0L engine and does not affect Honda’s 1.5L turbo engine.
