[quote=aargee;1707352]I was just expecting this news. Somehow I tend to believe that if there's any recall on any vehicle in whole world, the least affected country will be India. Is it because the car manufacturer tends to believe that they can get away with law more easily than their customers OR the customers will not create noise to be noticed by others?
No!! it is because people in INDIA will still go out and buy a car made by that freaking manufacturer.Mind you if this was a recall by a TATA everybody in this forum would start shouting from the top of their lungs.
Nice going Suffer now, it is time we Indians look at ourselves and evaluate the Indian Car co's without any prejudice.

Toyota also had a small recall with Innova for some rear suspension or axle issue. Toyota stated that in worst case, the car would stop, nothing more.
2) Jazz in India will not be recalled.
Source : No Jazz recall in India, says Honda
And what about G3HC i.e. NHC ? That car was based on first generation Jazz which is currently being recalled globally.
4) OT :
What is going wrong with Japs ? First Toyota which is in a reasonably big trouble, and now this. This is similar to Ford and GM recall issues of 1990's IMHO.

I've put up a clarification in the opening post. This recall does NOT affect the ANHC (currently sold Honda city) or the Honda Jazz.
In India, it applies only to the 2007 NHC (previously sold Honda City generation, the weird looking one).

I totally agree with this point of view.
Its time we re-evaluate our blind fixation on Japanese cars.
Imagine something like this happening to TATA MANZA, for example. We would have gone ahead and asked for replacement of the entire car (and i dont think am exagerrating).
Since its Honda, we are happy that a Recall is taking place.
So much for the premium charged on these cars in the name of RELIABILITY !!!
Coming to the topic.,,
Iam really unsure whether my 2008 ANHC is free from this manufacturing flaw.
For the record, I really dont blindly buy the officail Honda statement / press note (since I dont blindly trust them).
Adding to the apprehension is the fact that I already had a defect on my Power Window Switch a few months back (which according to the dealer has been Fully Rectified).
Also considering the information that ANHC is based on previous generation JAZZ (which is now being recalled), am wondering should i actually sit back and relax assuming the Honda press note is true at face-value and the ANHC is free from trouble !!
Can someone in this forum throw credible light on the subject, for me to get rid of my apprehensions pertaining to my ANHC??

Thought i'd give an update.
I spoke to RRH Service, and they will be getting a list of affected cars by Monday, 8th Feb. If your car is affected, you can take an appointment and get the power windows switches changed.
This is for cars manufactured in 2007.

Its indeed a good thing that they are doing a recall. And you really cannot compare this to problems with tata vehicles . Ask someone who owns / owned an Indica like myself . For every 1 part changed in an honda / hyundai vehicle there would be 5 changed in Tata.
No exageration here . All from personal experience. I have used an indica till 2004 and used hyundai and honda later. And it was not a version 1 . It was a v2 which was supposed to be free of all initial defects.

If I can recall rightly..in 2008 a HC caught fire in Delhi I guess and the occupants dies..that time it was blamed on the electronics. Can't remember the details..if someone does then please share.
While recalls aren't a very bad thing what needs to be seen is that what is the reason behind it and especially in India where no Honda car is truly worth the selling price it is a problem. If the fault can't harm anyone one might not complain much about it but in issues like this one really needs to ask questions.
Off late the Japanese have certainly gone downhill in terms of quality. Especially Toyota and Honda. Last year Toyota was beaten even by Hyundai in terms of parts reliability in the US. Honda has also started developing quality issues. Mitsu also issued a major recall a short time back for a certain batch of Evo X. It's time that we as a consumer recognise our power and buy accordingly. If the aam janta in India stops blindly buying cars like Honda City for 9-10 lakhs the company will certainly start paying heed to every small detail and price the cars competitively. it's because we blindly buy anything from Honda & Toyota at any absurd price that these guys are now focused only in minting money and selling more units per annum. In pursuit of the volumes they have gradually started to compromise with quality. Just look at their cars these days. They look as if they have been designed by accountants in a board room to meet the targets of financial documents rather than designers to satisfy the senses of a driver. just compare the design of the OHC with the weird looking previous model and the present model which looks so much like a HYBRID.
