About 34,000 vehicles are affected in the U. S. The problem is a missing or improperly set piston pin snap ring that could cause the engine to stall or fail. Dealers have a range of vehicle identification numbers for cars that can t be sold until the repairs are complete, but replacement parts are not yet available. All affected units will require use of a borescope to inspect the four cylinders to confirm correct piston pin snap ring placement. Vehicles exhibiting any concerns with piston pin snap ring placement may require replacement of damaged pistons, piston pins or rings, or other related engine components, Honda said in a recall announcement to dealers. Honda expects to conduct customer notifications in March, when all parts become available. After fan site first reported the news, we called Honda for a statement: American Honda has initiated a stop sale order to its dealers in the United States affecting certain models equipped with the 2. 0 liter base engine. This action does not affect any Civic models equipped with the 1. 5 liter Turbo engine. This approach to withhold further sales until those vehicles can be inspected was taken with a focus on our customers. Further, all affected 2. 0 liter Civic models currently in customer hands will be inspected by a Honda dealer.


While the specific details of this action are still being determined, American Honda has provided preliminary information to the NHTSA and intends to provide more details in a formal notification to NHTSA on Friday, February 5. Once NHTSA formally acknowledges that notification, Honda will release a statement with further details. Concerned owners can call Honda at 888-234-2138 for more information. Honda has issued a stop-sale and safety-recall notice for 2016 Civics equipped with the 2. 0-liter four-cylinder engine due to a manufacturing inconsistency that could cause engine damage or failure. Although an official campaign number has not yet been issued by NHTSA, what appears to be official Honda dealership correspondence detailing the action was recently posted to an enthusiast forum on the website, indicating the stop-sale of vehicles currently in dealer inventory and the plans to recall and inspect affected vehicles already in customersБ hands. Issued on January 30, 2016, Honda Service Bulletin number 16-017 states: БA small number of engines were produced with piston pin snap rings that may not be completely seated. If the snap ring is not completely seated, it will come out allowing the piston pin to contact the cylinder wall which can damage the engine. Б While Honda has not yet taken official public action, the automaker told, While the specific details of this action are still being determined, American Honda has provided preliminary information to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration and intends to provide more details in a formal notification to NHTSA on Friday, February 5.


Honda also said that cars with the 1. 5-liter turbocharged engine were not affected. Accompanying the service bulletin found on the CivicX website is a copy of a claimed official email sent to all Honda parts and service managers stating that on January 29, Honda notified NHTSA of a stop-sale and safety recall affecting approximately 34,000 2016 Civic vehicles in the U. S. , due to Бpotentially missing or misset piston pin snap rings that may cause engine stall or failure. Б According to the letter, the remediation process includes inspection of the engine with a borescope to determine correct pin snap ring placement. Vehicles exhibiting any concerns with the piston pin snap ring placement Бmay require the replacement of damaged pistons, piston pins or rings, or other related engine components. Б Unfortunately for current owners, it appears Honda may need some time to assemble a steady supply of replacement parts and borescope tools needed to identify and rectify the problems, citing mid-March as the target date for notifying owners. In light of recent reports, however, that timetable may need some adjusting. Until then, owners of 2016 Honda Civics with the 2. 0-liter are advised to gather their vehicle paperwork including the all-important VIN (not all vehicles are affected) and contact their dealer or American Honda for further assistance.
