According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda is recalling around 21,700 units of the 2011 Civic in the U.S. and Canada to address a possible fuel leak in a roll-over crash.
“Observation during assembly revealed that the roll-over valve inside certain fuel pump modules may have been damaged during production,” Honda said in a statement. “If a vehicle is involved in a rollover crash, a cracked roll-over valve may allow fuel leakage from the gasoline tank into the evaporative emissions canister. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this defect.”
