Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,038 model-year 2013 Honda Fit hatchbacks manufactured May 24 through July 5, 2013, and equipped with a manual transmission

The Problem: Due to a manufacturing error, the passenger-side driveshaft may break. If this happens while driving, the vehicle would lose power and coast to a stop, increasing the risk of a crash. Honda says no crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the passenger-side driveshaft and replace it, if necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Honda will notify owners starting June 15. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more information.
