TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Honda will recall 14,640 model years 2009 and 2010 Fit vehicles in
Canada to replace the lost motion springs, components within the engine
valvetrain. The lost motion springs, which are compressed by rocker
arms in normal engine use, may bend or break over time resulting in
abnormal engine noise and potentially causing engine damage or
stalling. There have been no reported accidents, injuries or vehicle
crashes related to this issue in Canada.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they
receive notification of this recall from Honda by mail. Notification to
customers will begin in early March 2011.
When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more important
to the company than fulfilling our obligation and responsibility to
alert our customers. Owners of these vehicles can determine if their
vehicle requires repair by calling toll free to 1-888-946-6329.
