350K Honda Civic vehicles recalled for software update related to electric parking brake

Honda has recalled around 350,083 model year 2016 Honda Civic two door and four door 1.5L turbo and 2.0L vehicles because the electric parking brake (EPB) may not engage if it is applied immediately after turning the ignition off. The company cautions that if the EPB is not applied, the vehicle may roll away, increasing the risk of a crash (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 16V725, Report receipt date: October 11, 2016).

Remedy. Honda will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle’s software to allow the EPB to engage immediately after the ignition is turned off, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 8, 2016.

Contact information. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda’s number for this recall is KC6. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
