  3. 2006 Honda Civic SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:WHEEL SPEED SENSOR NHTSA Campaign #07V399000

    • Date Announced: SEPTEMBER 05, 2007
    • Vehicles Affected: 260,000

    Summary: On certain vehicles, the wheel speed sensor housing uses an O-ring seal to prevent leakage to or from the wheel bearing. If assembled improperly, the O-ring may not seal properly allowing water to enter the wheel bearing and eventually cause damage to the bearing, especially in areas where use of road salt is prevalent. If the driver continues to drive with this condition it is possible for the wheel bearing to become loose, which could cause the bearing to fail.

    Consequence: This could cause a wheel to fall off of the vehicle, possibly resulting in a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the rear ABS sensors and wheel bearings for damaged parts and replace them free of charge. The recall began on September 25, 2007. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #07V399000 »
