2016 Civic Engine Recall Affecting Some VINs (M63 piston pin snap ring recall)



10thcivicforum members have discovered an ongoing engine recall which appears to be causing the stop sale on some 2016 Civic models. The 'M63 Piston Clip / Ring' recall affects all trims, both engines, both sold & unsold cars, but only a certain limited range of VINs.

The issue appears to be with the piston pin snap ring on some engines. You can check whether issue applies to your 2016 Civic by calling 888-234-2138 (have your VIN # ready).

Actually on another site an official statement from honda said it only effects the 2.0L engines.

- There is one open recall and one TSB. The recall is for a piston clip, the TSB is for an amp issue effecting Touring trim levels.
- The recall affects only the 2.0L engine, and is VIN specific.
- The website is not currently up to date and you just call the Honda Recall line for info on your specific car.
- Parts will be arriving some time in the near future (Feb. 5th was suggested), and notices will be additionally mailed.

5 Civics in 10 years. I might be an addict.

FTFY:
…on another site (c-i-v-i-c-x.com) a poster quoting a Honda document said…

There is no official statement from Honda available anywhere I've seen, including hondanews.com as of several minutes ago.

An email from my dealership service manager:
"This new recall just came out on the 30th. As of right now I am still waiting on the procedure in which Honda will be inspecting and repairing the effected vin range vehicles. I would continue to drive and operate the vehicle as you have been and when I get some more info on what steps are needed and repairs/tools needed I will make sure to let you know. I am sure Honda will also be sending out a mailer on this matter as well. I will check the info daily and let you know as soon as I know. Have a great day and I’ll be in touch with you soon."

You can also check your Vin online to see if your vehicle is on the recall list.

When I call American Honda, my 2016 Civic EX is on the list to be recalled in regards to the engine piston snap ring issue. When I insert my VIN online, it indicates, no recall

I thought the EX wasn't affected by the engine recall?

2.0L engines, so EX potentially yes, EX-T and above, no.

Yesterday I called the Cali Honda CS, and gave them my VIN. Took about 5 min but they came back and said YES my 2016 EX (purchased in November) is in the recall. They also said we won't know the remedy till mid March. Just call with your VIN and they should be able to give you an answer.
