Reuters is reporting that 45,335 Honda Civic hybrids are being recalled because of a faulty voltage converter that has the potential to short circuit and stop the engine. The affected cars are 2006 model year Civic hybrids that were built between September 2005 and September 2006. Most of these hybrids (31,123) are in the U.S. and most of the rest (7,129) are in Japan. Each repair will cost Honda $44 (5,300 yen), for a total of $2 million. For drivers, of course, the repair is free.

No accidents have been reported from the defect, a Honda spokesman said.
