Default Honda recalling 50,000 new Civic models over driveshaft fear

From AB

Statement by American Honda Regarding Left Driveshaft Recall: 2012
Honda Civic

06/12/2012 - TORRANCE, Calif. -- Honda will voluntarily recall
approximately 50,000 model-year 2012 Civic vehicles in the United
States to inspect and, if necessary, replace the left driveshaft. The
left (driver's side) driveshaft in certain vehicles may not have been
properly assembled, potentially allowing it to separate from the outer
CV joint while in operation. If separation occurs, the engine will no
longer propel the vehicle in any gear, and the vehicle may roll away
if the parking brake has not been set when the gear selector has been
placed in the Park position, increasing the risk of a crash or
personal injury. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to
this issue.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as
they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed
notification to customers will begin in late-June 2012. In addition to
contacting customers by mail, in late-June, owners of these vehicles
will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going
on-line to or by calling (800) 999-1009, and
selecting option 4.
