WASHINGTON — American Honda Motor Co. is recalling more than 180,000 Honda Civic coupes and sedans built for the
2006-07 model years because their rear wheel bearings may fail.

Separately, dealers will install new brake light switches with protective coverings in about 20,000 Civic sedans and Civic
Hybrids built for the 2006 model year.

In the larger recall, Honda told regulators that an improperly assembled O-ring on a wheel speed sensor housing allows water
and road salt to reach the wheel bearing. In time, the bearing can loosen, overheat and fail.

Honda investigated after wheels came off two cars in Canada, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration. Dealers are to inspect wheel speed sensors and bearings and replace those that are damaged, NHTSA
said.

In the other recall, Honda told NHTSA that lubricant from the telescoping mechanism of the steering column causes some brake
light switches to fail.
