Exclamation Honda to recall 1.35 mn Fit subcompacts globally

TOKYO: Honda Motor Co said on Thursday it would recall about 1.35 million Fit subcompacts globally to repair defective wiring in the headlights.

No accident was reported from the defect, a Honda spokesman in Tokyo said.

Subject to the recall are Fit cars built at Honda's Suzuka factory in Japan between November 2001 and October 2007. About 735,000 units will be recalled in Japan, where the Fit is the second most popular car behind Toyota Motor Corp's Prius, excluding 660cc minivehicles.

Honda will also recall 143,000 Fits exported to the United States, and 385,000 units in Europe, where the model is called the Jazz. The car will also be recalled in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

In Japan, the recall will cost about 3.6 billion yen ($43 million) and will have negligible impact on Honda's earnings, the spokesman said.

Does this recall affect the Indian Jazz as well? What is the potential hazard?

Recalling stories have become never ending stories nowadays, albeit its good to see manufactured bothered about the car which he has sold and want to rectify a manufacturing defect.

I guess Indian Jazz will not have a impact(not sure)
I guess the recall is to fix the defective wiring, which might lead to some electrical short circuit resulting in burns
