Honda Canada is voluntarily recalling approximately 12,587 of its popular 2012 Civics in Canada.

The auto maker wants to inspect and, if necessary, replace the left driveshaft which may not have been properly pressed into the CV joint during assembly.

If the driveshaft separates from the joint, the engine will no longer propel the vehicle.
