Honda has announced a stop-sale and is preparing a mid-March recall on the hugely popular 2016 Civic over possible engine failure. Honda says the problem is with mis-installed or even missing piston rings on an estimated 34,000 vehicles. This is a big hit for Honda -- the 2016 Civic was named the North American Car of the Year in January and was expected to be a big contributor to the manufacturer's total sales.
