The imported Honda Civic Type R FD2 and Civic Hybrid are not affected by the latest recall by Honda Malaysia. The recall only involves the local Civic CKD models after reconfirmed by Honda Malaysia officially.
For 2006-2008 Civic, it is reported that affected units experienced oil leakage from the power steering feed hose, caused by deterioration from running in hot and humid weather. Though the affected units may not cause serious safety issues, the possibility of a technical breakdown might show in the future. Honda Malaysia will change the rubber material for the power steering feed hose to improve its heat resistance. The campaign expects to involve 16,537 units of 2006-2008 Civic.
