What are the defects?

The Electronic Power Steering (EPS) on these vehicles may have a defect in the steering joint. During manufacture the yoke bolts may have been tightened out of sequence, which could cause the steering yoke to separate from the steering shaft, resulting in loss of steering.

What are the hazards?

When the steering wheel in affected vehicles is turned, the steering does not respond. The loss of steering control can increase the risk of a accident, resulting in injury or death of vehicle occupants or bystanders.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should make an appointment with their nearest Authorised Honda Dealer and arrange to have their unit inspected and, if necessary, repaired free of charge.
