    Default Honda recalls 25,000 Civics over gas pedals

    WASHINGTON - Honda Motor Co. recalled about 25,000 Civics on Thursday because the accelerator pedal was improperly installed on some 2006 models, which could cause a crash.

    If the pedal is improperly installed, it could come loose, cause the throttle to stick and raise the potential for a crash. Honda spokesman Sage Marie said there have been no crashes or injuries linked to the issue in the popular-selling vehicle.

    The company sold 257,749 Civics in the first nine months of this year, down 1.2 percent from 262,958 sold last year. Honda did not immediately have a breakdown of how many 2006 models have been sold thus far.

    Owners were being notified of the recall this month and told to bring their cars to a dealership. Dealers will either reset the pedal or replace the assembly at no cost to consumers.

    Exactly. And everyone will be happily driving these cars with stuck gas pedal, potentially a death trap, and not even question the HONDA company.

    In US, they have teams of Lawyers that are always ready to take on the Corporate Giants and make them pay for evey little injury that results from their negligence. Many companies such as Honda, have their own Lawyers, ready to defend them in any class action law suite. But, before these things go to court, they fix the problem, no matter what the cost, by recalling their cars, around the world.
    Permanent positive change (in your life, or the society) with proper planning occurs slowly. While without planning any change becomes a disaster rather quickly. Said by Whocares...
