Honda recalls 35,000 Civic hybrids

WASHINGTON – Honda Motor Co. is recalling more than 35,000 Civic hybrids in the United States to fix a problem with the electrical system that could cause the headlights to turn off or the engine to stall.

Honda says the recall covers 2006-2007 model year Civic hybrids.

The company says the voltage converter that relays power from the motor assist system to the vehicle’s electrical components could fail.

Honda told the government it had received seven reports of stalling engines and 82 warranty claims connected to the problem. Dealers will replace the voltage converter at no charge. The recall is expected to begin in mid-March.

Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 and select option four.
