    Honda have released the following safety recall for the following chassis code for Civic. The TSB is dated 22-07-2016 TSB#SQ-07-001-00
    Under certain circumstances the driver may notice a reduction in the performance of the VSA Modulator functions. Although there is no loss of brake function, the vehicle stability assist system may not react as designed and in some driving circumstances, there is a possibility for a skid to occur and result in loss of control.

    During the manufacturing of the VSA / ABS modulator, insertion of a plastic filter into the modulator was misaligned, causing damage to the plastic filter which resulted in a small piece of the broken filter entering the modulator. Depending on the size of the broken piece, one of the one-way check valves in the modulator may be kept open which could lead to reduced VSA performance.

    The VSA modulator supplier's manufacturing process has been modified and improved to correctly install the filter and therefore eliminate any contamination.
