    Nothing like recalling Japanese built vehicles

    Washington —Honda Motor Co. said it is recalling more than 685,000 Honda Fit hatchbacks worldwide for the second time since 2010 to replace the master power window switch to avoid fire risks. The Japanese automaker is urging drivers to park the vehicles outside until it is inspected.

    Honda is recalling 686,298 2007-2008 Fit vehicles in 57 countries, including 143,000 in the United States to again replace the switches, spokesman Chris Martin said. Honda said under severe conditions, rain water or other spilled liquids may enter through an open driver’s window and enter the master power window switch on the driver’s door. “Over time, exposure to water and other fluids can cause electrical resistance in the switch, which ultimately can cause the switch to overheat and melt, damaging the switch and potentially damaging an associated wire harness. Additionally, if a switch melts, it could produce smoke and, potentially cause a fire,” Honda said.
