Japanese car major Honda said on Monday it will recall 72,115 units of its mid-size sedan City in India to replace a faulty power window switch, although there have been no local complaints.
This is part of a recall of 9,62,000 cars worldwide that Honda Motor Company announced on Monday to fix power windows and problems related to programming of components.
In India, this recall will cover all second-generation Honda City cars rolled out between 2005 and 2007. In January this year, the company had recalled 8,532 units of City made in 2008. “This time we are extending this part replacement exercise we started in January to cover cars manufactured in the 2005-07 period,” Jnaneswar Sen, senior vice-president, sales & marketing, Honda Siel Cars India (HSCI) said.
However, the third generation City, which is currently being sold in India, is not affected and does not require any part replacement, the company said in a statement.
For Honda, this is the third recall in India this year. The company had recalled close to 58,000 units of City in February this year to replace ‘lost motion spring’ in the valve train.
Honda had received complaints about power window switches in other markets such as US, but in India, the company says, it did not receive any complaints. “There are no such incidents reported in India,”
The latest recall will take place mostly in US and China.
