American Honda is recalling approximately 350,000 Civic coupe and sedans in the U.S. from the 2016 model year to fix an issue with the vehicles’ electronic parking brake.
The automaker, in a statement, said software that controls the vehicle stability control unit “may prevent application of the EPB when it is applied immediately after turning the vehicle ignition off.”
Without the EPB properly engaged and the vehicle in Park, the Civic could roll away, causing injury. No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of the issue, Honda said.
The problem was discovered through warranty claims related to "the illumination of the brake warning light," Honda said.
Honda will begin notifying affected Civic owners in November; dealers will install a software update free of charge.
Honda’s recall comes just a day after Toyota recalled 92,000 Prius models in the U.S. from the 2016 and 2017 models years to correct an issue with the vehicle’s parking brake.
