Due to “a bracket that covers the fuel hose connector” that’s supposedly secured with a bolt and nut in MY2008 and MY2009 Honda Civics but actually is only secured with a bolt, Honda has issued a Recall on 128 vehicles.
I know, the total number seems strange considering NHTSA’s notification that ’08 Civics are involved before stating in the text that it’s ’08 and ’09s. Anyway, in an accident that bracket could squeak loose resulting in a damaged fuel hose connector. Obviously, dealers will be responsible for ensuring the bracket is firmly secured. For your information, Honda’s available at 1-800-999-1009.
