Honda recall

Honda Cars Philippines has announced that select units of the 2014 City and the 2015 Jazz may be experiencing problems with their electronic control units (ECU). The company says that the problem was discovered during an evaluation of the vehicles.

The evaluation found that the cars' current ECU software is causing high stress to the drive pulley shaft inside the CVT transmission. HCPI added that if ECU units are not updated immediately, the drive pulley shaft may break and cause serious problems to the vehicle.

While no accidents or injuries related to the issue have been reported, the carmaker is asking all owners of the affected units to bring their vehicles in for an update to the ECU. The update should take roughly an hour, and owners may set an appointment with the nearest Honda dealership or service center.

Just last August and September we reported that Honda was recalling cars as part of a preventive measure regarding defective airbags. Those issues affected tens of thousands of vehicles. This new ECU problem with the City and the Jazz affects 2,431 units. Take a look at the table below to see if your car is affected.
