Honda Malaysia is recalling the City Hybrid 2021 and Civic 2022 models as a precautionary safety measure.
In a statement today, it said 630 units of the City Hybrid 2021 are being recalled to replace the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) camera fitted in the front windscreen, as it may not operate properly and cause the system to be inactive while on the road.
"Meanwhile, 72 units of the Civic 2022 are involved in the measure to rectify the welding point at the slide adjuster in the driver seat.
"This may cause the driver’s seat to not be fixed in position when driving and may compromise the seatbelt protection for the driver," said Honda Malaysia.
It said that inspection, repair and replacement of the affected parts will be free of charge, with all costs related to the recall activity to be borne by Honda Malaysia.
As of today, the company said there had been no accidents or injuries caused by this issue reported in Malaysia.
"Honda Malaysia encourages customers to download and update their details via the HondaTouch mobile application for further verification. Customers will be informed via notification letters or they can contact any authorised Honda dealer.
"We apologise for the inconvenience caused to affected customers and would like to reassure that other current production and selling models are not affected," it said.
Vehicle owners can obtain information or check their vehicle status on the product recall by calling Honda Malaysia’s toll-gree number at 1-800-88-2020 or logging on to productrecall.honda.com.my.
