What are the defects?
The affected VIN range has been expanded and some faulty shafts may have been missed. Some of the Steering Shafts fitted to these models may have been damaged during the manufacturing process, causing a slight bending and possible cracking of the shaft.
Please note this campaign has been reported previously, and some units may have already been inspected.
What are the hazards?
The shaft may break during use causing loss of steering control and possible accident.
What should consumers do?
Do not use the product until it has been inspected by a Honda Dealer and, if required, a new countermeasure steering shaft fitted. This applies even to units that been previously inspected, but not had a new shaft fitted.
