(NBC NEWSCHANNEL) Honda is recalling 350,000 Civic coupes and sedans in the U.S. because their parking brakes may not function properly.

The recall involves Civic coupes and sedans from the 2016 model year sold in the U.S.

Honda says the electric parking brake may not work if it's applied immediately after turning the ignition off.

If it can't be applied, the brake warning light will blink in the instrument panel.

If the parking brake isn't working and the driver doesn't select the parking gear, the vehicle is at risk of rolling away.

Honda says no crashes or injuries have been reported and it will repair the vehicles for free.
