Honda is recalling more than 140,000 vehicles because of drive pulley shaft stress problems, particularly with the continuously variable transmission, or CVT.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this issue could lead to a lack of control during steering. While this has led to 23 different warranty claims, there is no record of any injuries connected to CVT failure in these cars. The recall will target Honda Fit and Civic vehicles made in 2014.
The remedy for this defect is a software update. Dealers will adjust the previous CVT system to reduce stress within the vehicle’s structure. These Honda recalls were announced last month and is expected to officially launch on October 16.
