Honda orders safety recall for cars
Monday 05 September 2011
Car maker Honda is recalling nearly a million vehicles worldwide to fix electric windows and computer systems.
It wants to check 936,000 units of the Jazz, CR-V and City in North America, Asia, Europe and Africa.
Honda says the recall was prompted by defects in driver's-side power window switch units, which could potentially melt and catch fire.
It will also recall 26,000 CR-Z compact hybrids globally due to programming problems with the engine control unit.
There have been no injuries because of the defects, Honda said.
