RECALL ALERT: Honda Fit

Honda Issues Recall of Fit

By Jamie Page Deaton

Feb 17, 2011



Honda is recalling almost 700,000 cars worldwide, and 97,000 of the recalled cars are in the United States. The recall affects the Honda Fit.

“The Japanese automaker said Wednesday it needs to replace a part called a lost-motion spring, which is a component in the engine valve train, in 2009 and 2010 models of the small car,” says CNNMoney.

The Associated Press writes, “No accidents have been reported related to the problem, but at least 72 complaints were filed in Japan, and 29 abroad, Honda Motor Co. spokesman Tomohiro Okada said Thursday.”

“The lost motion springs, which are compressed by rocker arms in normal engine use, may bend or break over time resulting in abnormal engine noise and potentially causing engine damage or stalling,” explains Honda, adding that the company is holding the recall “to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda by mail. Notification to customers will begin in early March 2011.” If you have questions about the recall, you can go to www.recalls.honda.com or call Honda at (800) 999-1009.
