Honda Cars Philippines is announcing the voluntary recall of the 2022 Civic for an electric power steering gearbox replacement. HCPI’s statement is as follows:

It has been found that the electric power steering gearbox worm gear in these units was improperly installed or manufactured. The grease applied on the worm gear was depleted, causing a stick slip leading to an unusual sound when turning the steering wheel.

HCPI will notify owners of affected vehicles and may seek assistance in contacting new owners if the vehicle has been sold or possibly disposed of.

The gearbox replacement should take a 3.5-to-4-hour time period to complete.

To verify if your vehicle is affected by this recall, you may encode the 17-digit chassis number or vehicle identification number on the recall information webpage.

For inquiries, you may visit any Honda dealership or contact the HCPI hotline at (02) 8857-7240. No accidents have been reported in relation to this issue.

As Honda keeps its promise to deliver quality and safety, parts replacement will be conducted free of charge at Honda’s 37 authorized dealers and four service centers nationwide.
