On January 29, Honda Motor Co. issued a worldwide recall for a total of 646,000 units of the Fit/Jazz and City models, including 140,000 in the U.S., due to a fire hazard that could potentially cause personal injury

 

According to a Honda spokeswoman, models sold in North America, South America, Europe, South Africa, and all of Asia except for Japan are under the recall.

 

The Fit is the best-selling model of Honda in Japan.

 

According to Honda, the recall was to repair a defective master switch, which could cause water to enter the power window switch, sometimes resulting in a fire.

 

The spokeswoman said that three reports had been received of fires caused by the defect. Two of those reports came from the U.S. and the third was from South Africa.
