Honda is recalling 143,676 examples of the 2014-2015 Civic and 2015 Fit over a problem with the CVT. According to the company in a statement, the transmission software is programmed to use high hydraulic pressure at certain times, which puts a lot of stress on the on the drive pulley shaft. Honda goes on to say certain components of the drive pulley shaft may have been produced at the low end of the hardness specification. This combination could cause the shaft to break and cause the front wheels to lose power or lock up.


According to NHTSA, there are 23 warranty claims for this problem, with the first one happening in July of 2014. Honda says no injuries has been reported for this issue.


Honda will begin notifying owners later this month. Dealers will update the software for the CVT.

WOW, just a software update, so they will stop using the High pressure and reduce the performance of the auto so they do not have to replace the drive pulley shaft. 


Sounds like Cheapness over profits by Honda.


Corporate Greed at it's best rather than quality to the customer.
