Honda announced it is voluntarily recalling Honda Fit hatchbacks from the 2007-2008 model years to replace master power switches for the windows.
The recall affects about 143,000 Honda Fits in the United States.
According to this article, ” 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.
No injuries or damage has been reported because of this.
If you are concerned that may be damage to your Honda Fit, please bring it in to Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealership and we will take care of you.
