Message : Honda recall: 4,000 hit
HONDA Jazz hatchbacks here are among those affected by a global safety recall announced last week.
Authorised Honda agent Kah Motor said yesterday that the affected cars were manufactured between 2002 and 2004. It said it sold about 4,000 such cars here, but is unsure how many are still on the road.
Singapore car owners often trade in their rides once they hit five years old. Many of these trade-in vehicles are then scrapped or re-exported to other countries.
Honda Motor\’s global safety campaign affects close to 650,000 cars in North America, South America, Europe, South Africa and Asia, but not Japan.
The recall is for Honda to fix a design flaw in a power-window switch. Honda said moisture could get into the current switch, which may cause a short-circuit and, in extreme cases, fires.
There were three reported cases of fires as a result of this defect – two in the
United States and one in South Africa.
