American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 54 model year 2017-2018 Honda Civics and CR-Vs.
The magnet that controls the torque sensor output signal for the electronic power steering system may not be properly secured, allowing the magnet to become dislodged.
During a full lock turn, the dislodged magnet may cause steering assist to be applied in the opposite direction, reducing vehicle maneuverability and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering gearbox assembly, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin November 5, 2018.
Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are C2N, P2O.
