Honda Motor Co. recalled 646,000 of its Fit/Jazz and City automobiles globally over a faulty window switch after a child died when fire broke out in a car last year, Reuters reported.
The recall includes 141,084 vehicles in the United States and covers the models sold in North America, South America, Europe, South Africa and Asia, but not Japan, a spokeswoman said, the news service said. The Fit is Honda’s best-selling model in Japan, Reuters noted.
The U.S. recall covers Fits from model years 2007 and 2008, Honda spokeswoman Christina Ra said in the report. Honda said the recall was to fix a defective master switch, which could allow water to enter the power window switch and in some cases cause a fire, the story said. (Reuters)
