A mechanical seal in the fuel line on some vehicles was misplaced during assembly, leaving a gap where two segments of pipe attach and allowing for the potential of leakage.
No injuries or fires have been reported in relation to the glitch, and most of the affected vehicles are still in inventory and will be fixed before going up for sale.
Honda will start notifying owners of the faulty cars on May 27, encouraging them to take their cars to dealerships to get them checked out. Owners of 2012 Honda Civics can also go to www.recalls.honda.com to see whether their cars need to be fixed.

@ Belt-whipped, nice to see that your proving to everyone else that your truly a moron. I agree, this recall proves that their Q&A dept are actually looking at things rather then looking at the problem years down the road. Way to be ahead of the game Honda!
Admirable of Honda to address the issue so soon and with such a small overall number.
I agree that Honda is handling this well. This is how recalls should be done. The best thing to come from the Toyota fiasco is that most auto manufacturers are afraid to hide any of their recalls. This can only be a good thing for consumers.
I find it interesting though that the exact same people who praise Honda are the exact same people who rip on Ford or GM or Chrysler when they have recalls. I am sure most people would find their comments more credible if they would just show some consistency. But I won't hold my breath.
I s there something amiss with V Tec Techno per se?
