Honda Recalls 646,000 Fits Worldwide

Sat Jan 30, 2010 12:46 am

First Toyota, now Honda.

Exerpt which contains the actual recall announcement (in bold):

"Under some severe operating conditions, water, rain, or other liquid may enter the driver's window and reach the master power window switch, resulting in impaired function of the switch. If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the liquid intrusion, it may result in failure of the switch and overheating.

"An overheating switch may cause smoke, melting or, potentially, fire."


The Honda recall affects models built worldwide, in Japan, China, Brazil, Thailand, Malaysia and India. Of the vehicles being recalled, 141,140 are in the U.S., 171,372 are in the U.K., where the model is called the Jazz, and 229,000 are in Latin America.


Unlike the recent Toyota issue, this one can't be blamed cars built only at U.S. assembly plants at all.

Nor will this one kill 19 people.

This, so far, looks nowhere near as severe as Toyota's problem.
I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning
