The 10th Gen Honda Civic, not long from its launch, has the 1st critical issue with the engine that makes the japanese car maker made a decision to recall the sexy and futuristic car due to the problem with the Engine piston ring.
The Japanese automaker is recalling 42,129 examples of its shiny new sedan (equipped with the 2.0-liter engine, not the 1.6) over concerns of catastrophic engine failure. Apparently, the vehicles under recall are either missing or have an incorrectly installed piston wrist pin snap ring.
If the piston’s wrist pin isn’t secure, it may damage the engine’s cylinder walls, which would seize the whole assembly and require replacement. And nobody wants to swap the engine on a brand-new car.
This parts should be installed correctly at the first time during production and this shows a bad practice at the engine assembly plant. However, it is a good move to recall and inspect all the car immediately rather than just waiting for the engine to fail.
