MARKHAM ON, July 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Honda Canada will voluntarily expand a
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) non-compliance recall announced in April
2013 to include an additional 8,871 model-year 2012-2013 Fit DX/LX
vehicles in Canada. Vehicles will receive an update for the VSA system
software, free of charge. The VSA system on certain 2012-2013 model
year Honda Fit vehicles may allow yaw rates that exceed certain Canada
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS) requirements. This issue was
originally discovered during FMVSS compliance testing in the U.S., and
Honda is not aware of any related crashes or injuries.
The original recall initiated in April 2013 included only certain Fit
Sport models in Canada. With this expansion, a total of 10,887 Fit
models sold in Canada are now included in the recall.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they
receive notification of this recall from Honda Canada. Mailed
notification will be sent to customers in late-July 2013. Owners of
vehicles from the affected model years will be able to determine if
their vehicles require repair by visiting www.honda.ca/recalls or by calling (888) 9HONDA9.
