Honda will recall 14,640 model years 2009 and 2010 Fit vehicles in Canada to replace the lost motion springs, components within the engine valvetrain. The lost motion springs, which are compressed by rocker arms in normal engine use, may bend or break over time resulting in abnormal engine noise and potentially causing engine damage or stalling. There have been no reported accidents, injuries or vehicle crashes related to this issue in Canada.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda by mail. Notification to customers will begin in early March 2011.

When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more important to the company than fulfilling our obligation and responsibility to alert our customers. Owners of these vehicles can determine if their vehicle requires repair by calling toll free to 1-888-946-6329.
