Japanese automaker Honda said Thursday it was recalling 145,573 vehicles due to a fault that caused oil to leak onto some cars' exhaust pipes.
The firm said it had received 14 complaints from motorists including nine cases where the burned oil released fumes into the affected vehicles. There were no injuries, it added.

The recall covers vehicle brand models "Vamos", the "Vamos Hobio" small van and the "Z" two-door hatchback built between October 1998 through August 2010 and sold only in Japan, the automaker said in a document filed with Japan's transport ministry.
