Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) is initiating a voluntary safety recall for select 2014 City and 2015 Jazz vehicles produced and sold in the country for immediate updating of the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) software.
During the evaluation of the said vehicle models, findings state that the current software installed in the ECU causes high stress to the Drive Pulley Shaft inside the vehicle’s Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) which may result to some breakage during the operation. If not updated immediately, the Drive Pulley Shaft may break which may result to some serious problem to the vehicle.
There have been no reported incidents or injuries related to this concern here in the Philippines. This campaign is part of HCPI’s effort to ensure safety of these vehicles’ owners and their passengers. HCPI advises customers to contact and set an appointment with the nearest Honda car dealerships and service centers nationwide. The ECU software updating would take only an hour.
