Japanese automaker Honda is recalling 130,000 vehicles in Canada. Affected models include the Fit, Civic, Accord, Insight, and the Acura ILX. The Canadian recall follows a similar recall of 1.4 million vehicles in the U.S.

Honda says 96,761 of the recalled vehicles need repairs in the drive shaft. They can break due to corrosion from winter road salt. That recall covers Honda Fits from 2007 to 2014, Accords made from 2013 to 2015, 2012 Civic hybrids, 2013 Acura ILX hybrids, and Acura ILX vehicles from 2013 to 2015.

An additional recall of 33,150 Canadian vehicles concerns a software error. It can causes the rear camera, turn signals, and windshield wipers to malfunction. The software problem is in Accord and Accord Hybrid models from 2018 to 2020. It also affects Insight vehicles manufactured from 2019 and 2020.

Honda says it is contacting all owners affected by the recall. You can also contact dealerships directly, if you think you might be affected. Alternatively, you can enter your VIN number into Honda Canada’s recall website to check your vehicle.
