Whenever a brand launches a new model attempts to make its technology better and greater than the model that replaces. However sometimes these new models apply radical technical improvements that can result in failures. These failures, as is logical is must to the new technology still has that adjust is as is due, but usually the brands tend to solve it before the problem is again endemic.
Honda is an of the brands that when launches a new model to the market bet by introducing systems technological revolutionary. Its new Civic equipped with completely new mechanics so as assistants to driving which formerly could not include the preceding generation. In this case, the brand has changed the parking braking system and they have both been forced to call at about 350,000 units by defects in youth in the United States equipped with both petrol engines.
Depending on the brand electronic stability (ESP) system control software prevents that when the driver stops the car engine may trigger the electric parking brake of the car. If the brake has not been locked you should turn on a light in the instrument panel for about 15 seconds to warn the driver.
If this light does not illuminate, and the braking system does not block the car, the Honda Civic could roll by itself, as that would be, to put it in some form, in neutral. Therefore, if the vehicle free could hurt someone or cause an accident.
Today, and thanks to the new generation of the Honda Civic takes little time in the market, there are no victims or injuries accounted for. For both, to avoid causing any brand will get in touch with customers of United States to inform you that you must go through an official service to solve this problem. This action, as it is logical you won’t charge for customers and will serve to enhance a product already on its round.
We hope that the problem is completely solved until Honda put on sale the new Civic in the European market.
