Honda has issued a safety recall on the 2017 Civic due to an issue with the right half-shaft.
According to Cars.com, the right half-shaft was improperly heat-treated, decreasing its strength. This malfunction can result in the half-shaft breaking which could prevent the engine from moving the vehicle.
The error can also cause the vehicle to roll away from its intended spot if the parking break is not fully engaged.
The Honda Civic recall affects approximately 5,400 vehicles in the U.S.

Honda has recalled 800,000 Odyssey Minivans from 2011-2017 due to loose seats.
The second row of seating in the vehicles may tip forward if not secured properly when placed back after being taken out, or if adjusted.
If moderate to heavy breaking occurs, the seats will move. This increases the risk of injury, and Honda has in fact received 46 reports of injuries due to this malfunction.
Honda does not have a permanent solution. They are simply posting an instructional sheet and video online showing customers how to properly reinstall their seats.
Odyssey owners will not be notified until a solution is found, so many drivers will be driving around with these seats that shift around.
Honda is recalling vehicles that were already recalled.
Owners are being urged to bring in their cars that were improperly fixed when recalled the first time for defective airbags. These vehicles are all part of the massive Takata airbag recall.
The Takata airbags were recalled due to improperly deflating and depositing shrapnel when ruptured.
No injuries have been reported with this recall. However, keep in mind that people have been driving around believing their cars were fixed and they were safe, only to find out they were still in extreme danger.
The original Takata airbag recall has killed 18 people, many in minor accidents that lead to their death due to the fatal airbag defect.
