Honda is voluntarily recalling a small number of Honda Civics because of potential problems with the steering column. The recall only affects 157 Civics built between Oct. 26 and Oct. 30 of this year. They were fitted with the wrong steering wheel column.
Owners will receive notice by mail starting Dec. 4 and the steering wheel column will be replaced free of charge.
The people have spoken and despite reported criticisms of the 2012 Honda Civic, it sold more than 30,000 units in November…beating out all other compact cars, including the Toyota Corolla that only sold 22,000 units.
Some called the Honda Civic bland and boring, but maybe that’s what the people want.
Well, Honda also listened to the critics and has a revamped version of the Honda Civic coming in just a couple months. It will be interesting to see how the sales between the two Civics will compare. My prediction is the 2013 Civic will take over the previous version, but it will still stay in the top five compact cars.
“The Honda Civic will always be a strong seller because it has been around for so long and has shown how dependable it is,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda dealership in Wenatchee. “The 2012 Honda Civic lives up to the Civic name and gives drivers and passengers everything they expect in a Civic, including excellent gas mileage. The 2013 Civic is a little sportier and has improved performance. I love both Civics.”
