Statement by Honda Canada Regarding VSA Non-compliance Recall: 2012-2013 Honda 
Fit Sport 
MARKHAM, ON, April 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Honda Canada will voluntarily recall 
approximately 2,000 model-year 2012-2013 Fit Sport vehicles in Canada to 
update the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system software, free of charge. The 
VSA system on certain 2012-2013 model year Honda Fit Sport vehicles equipped 
with certain tires may allow the tires to lose traction and the vehicle to 
skid under certain test maneuvers, resulting in yaw rates that exceed certain 
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS) requirements. This issue was 
discovered during compliance testing, and Honda is not aware of any related 
crashes or injuries. 
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles 
to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive 
notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will 
begin in May, 2013. In addition to contacting customers by mail, owners of 
these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by 
going to www.honda.ca/recalls or by calling (888)9HONDA9.
