Potential Number Of Units Affected: 43,782


Summary:
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Honda Fit Sport vehicles manufactured May 23, 2011, through March 22, 2013. The electronic stability control system of the affected vehicles may allow excessive yaw rates at high steering angles with certain tires. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Vehicle Motor Safety Standard No. 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems."

Consequence:
Excessive yaw rates prevent the proper function of the electronic stability control (ESC) system, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Honda will notify owners and dealers will update the ESC software free of charge. The safety recall will begin on May 17, 2013. Owners may contact Honda automobile customer service at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's recall campaign number is S99.
