Honda India to recall 8,500 City cars

#1
NEW DELHI: Honda India will recall 8,532 City sedans that were sold in 2007 to replace a faulty power window switch. The move is part of a worldwide recall of City and Jazz/ Fit cars that were fitted with the same faulty switch which, in certain cases, was catching fire.

Honda Siel Cars India said in a statement on Saturday that no Jazz hatches would be recalled in India because the vehicle was introduced only in 2009 and none of them was fitted with the faulty switch.

Honda announced a worldwide recall of 6,46,000 vehicles in Tokyo to replace a faulty power window switch. This came close on the heels of another Japanese automobile giant, Toyota, recalling as many as 1.8 million vehicles to fix an accelerator pedal problem. While recalls, generally speaking, are seen as a sign of a responsible auto-maker, the fact that two Japanese companies have detected defect in their vehicles could impact their hitherto impeccable quality record.

HSCI said the replacement would be carried out free of cost and the company would communicate directly with the car owners through dealers. A spokesman said that dealers have already been told to track down City cars manufactured between May and Oct of 2007.

"HSCI is proactively replacing the part in these vehicles related to the potential problem of smoke coming out from the power window switch if water enters the driver window when window is left open during rain or is exposed to any other liquid due to spillage," the company statement said, adding that the latest City model was not affected. "The third generation City, currently sold in India, is not affected and does not require replacement," the statement added.

It will be very difficult to track and trace customers to whom sales were made in 2007. Due to long chains of distribution process it will be even more difficult.
