Honda Recalling Nearly a Million Vehicles Worldwide
Honda recently recalled 962,000 cars worldwide to fix power windows and computer systems.
The move covers 936,000 Fit subcompacts, CR-V crossovers and Fit Arias in North America, Asia, Europe and Africa. The Fit is called Jazz in some global markets, and the Fit Aria is also known as City.
Honda says the recall was prompted by defects in driver's-side power window switch units, which could melt and catch fire.
Some 26,000 CR-Z compact hybrids will also be recalled globally because of programming problems with the engine control unit.
Honda says no injuries have resulted from the defects.
