Honda is voluntarily recalling some Honda Fit vehicles and asking owners to park them outside until they can be inspected because there is potential for the power switches to catch fire.
No structural fires or injuries have been reported. Seven switches have melted and two caused fires in the doors.
The recall affects Honda Fit and Jazz vehicles from the 2007 and 2008 model years; it affects about 135,000 vehicles in the U.S. The glitch may affect the driver’s side door power windows. According to this article, water can get into the windows and cause the damage.
“If own one of these Honda Fits, please make an appointment to bring it in so we can determine if there is any damage,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda. “Take it to your nearest Honda dealership and our certified technicians will see if there is any damage and fix it free of charge if there is.”
If you have any questions about this recall, please do not hesitate to contact Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda.
