Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) has recalled 42,672 units of the 2nd-generation Honda City to replace faulty driver side power window switch. These units were manufactured in the year 2007 and 2008.
The company says that the driver side power window switch may malfunction incase water or any other liquid enters the driver side window. This is a preventive measure, says the company, and there have been no reported complaints from customers as such.
The problem does not sound very grave, but with the monsoon season almost upon us, it is necessary to take all precautions. The replacement would be carried out free of cost at Honda dealerships across India, and the owners will be contacted for the same. The 3rd generation Honda City currently sold in India is not affected and does not require any part replacement.
Honda has announced this recall as part of SIAMs voluntary recall policy for Indian car and bike manufacturers. This is not the first time Honda has recalled the City with a power-window switch problem though, in September 2011 it had recalled the pre-facelift version (2005 to 2007) of the second-generation City for a similar problem.
