TORRANCE (AP) — Honda Motor Co. says it’s recalling more than 1,000 new Honda Civics in the U.S. because they could leak fuel.
The 2012 Civic went on sale earlier this spring. The recall affects 1,156 cars, many of which haven’t even been sold yet. Honda said they’ll be repaired while they’re still on dealer lots.
Honda said the Civic’s fuel line could leak because of a manufacturing error. No injuries or fires have been reported related to the defect.
Honda will repair the fuel line for free. It will begin notifying customers of the recall on May 27.
Owners can determine if their cars need the repair on Honda’s Web site.
