Honda discovered the problem in May when five cars in Canada were found to have faulty rear side marker lights, then 15 more vehicles were found during an investigation of in-house Civics.

Honda’s investigation determined the internal circuit boards for the rear side marker LED lights were getting damaged during transit from a sub-supplier to the tail light supplier.

The Honda Civics were manufactured February 23, 2016, through May 20, 2016.

The recall will begin sometime in August when dealers will replace both tail light assemblies if needed.

Affected Honda Civic owners with questions should call Honda at 888-234-2138 and ask about recall number KB8. has more than 5,200 complaints about the Honda Civic, including the 2016 Honda Civic.
