Honda has announced that they are recalling certain model year 2012 through 2013 Fit Sport vehicles manufactured from May 23, 2011 through March 22, 2013. They stated that the electronic stability control system of the affected vehicles may allow excessive yaw rates at high steering angles with certain tires. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the the requirements of Federal Motor vehicle Safety Standard No. 126, “Electronic Stability Control Systems”.
Excessive yaw rates prevent the proper function of the electronic stability control system, increasing the risk of a crash. Honda will notify owners and dealers will update the ESC software free of charge. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
