TORRANCE, Calif. (KXAN) — Honda says they are issuing a voluntary recall for approximately 17,800 model-year 2015 Fit vehicles in the United States to replace the plug top ignition coils, free of charge.

According to a release from Honda, the original plug top ignition coils may degrade over time, which, in the worst case, could cause the vehicle’s engine to stall, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. The manufacturer discovered the problem through the warranty claim process outside of the United States.

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue at this time.

Honda says customers of 2015 Fit’s will receive notification letters starting Oct. 6. Owner’s of an affected vehicle should take their car to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of the recall from Honda.
