Honda recalls 1.35 million Jazz and Fit models worldwide to repair headlamps

About 1.35 million examples of Honda Fit/Jazz subcompact will be the issue of a recall caused by a potential problem with the carsí headlamps. This recall focuses on about 143,083 model year 2007 and 2008 Fit vehicles in the U.S., 385,000 units of the Jazz in Europe and 735,000 cars in Japan. According to the Japanese officials, the problem seems to have its roots in the routing of the wiring harness for the headlight control switch, for the plating on the wiring harness connectors for the low-beam circuit is in danger of becoming worn after repeated use. In a press statement, Honda informed that the worn plating on the connectors could cause the corrosion as well as the overheating and failure of the connector, thus losing the low-beam headlight functionality. Honda also mentioned that there were no accidents or injuries on this issue and the high-beam headlight circuit and function were not affected. The owners of model-year 2007 and 2008 Fit vehicles from the States are going to receive a notification at the beginning of January in order to bring the car to a Honda dealer for inspection. In case of damage, the Honda dealers will replace the wiring harness terminal and provide security to the wiring harness connector.
