In detail, Honda Philippines noted that it is recalling 1,025 units of the 2022 Model Year (MY) Civic to replace the Electric Power Steering Gearbox. HCPI said that the Electric Power Steering Gearbox worm gear on 2022 Honda Civic units was improperly installed or manufactured. The grease applied on the worm gear was depleted, causing a stick slip leading to an unusual sound when turning the steering wheel.  

Owners of the 2022 MY Civic are advised to bring their vehicles to any of the 37 authorized Honda Dealers and four Service Centers nationwide for the replacement of faulty parts. Of note, the replacement will be free of charge for affected vehicle owners and should only take three and a half hours to complete. HCPI shared that there are no accidents reported related to the Civic’s steering gearbox issue.
