Honda Recalls 2011
September 6, 2011 by staff
The company is recalling 936,000 cars worldwide from its setting and CR-V lines to replace the main switch for power windows on cars. A design flaw can allow window cleaners residues that accumulate, which over time can degrade the electrical contacts of the switch and could cause a fire. No injuries have been reported the problem, which affects 80,111 vehicles in the United States beginning in the CR-V 2006 model.
Honda (HMC) is also mention the cars of its CR-Z hybrid compact line are equipped with a manual transmission. A software error could allow the engine under certain conditions, to rotate in the opposite direction to the progress of the transmission – allowing the car, for example, roll backward when the transmission is in forward motion. No injuries have been reported. Honda plans to solve the problem with a software update. The recall affects some 26,000 vehicles worldwide, including 5,626 cars in the United States.
This is the second major recall of Honda in recent weeks, and a new setback for the Japanese in their struggle to recover from a spate of bad news and weak sales. Honda recalled 1.5 million cars in the U.S. early August to correct a transmission problem, and drew a scathing review of consumer reports for 2012 model of its ultra-popular Civic compact car.
