Coming on the heels of Toyota’s current recall debacle, Honda has announced a recall of Fit models sold in the U.S., the U.K. and Latin America. Per Honda’s official statement:
“Under some severe operating conditions, water, rain, or other liquid may enter the driver’s window and reach the master power window switch, resulting in impaired function of the switch. If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the liquid intrusion, it may result in failure of the switch and overheating. An overheating switch may cause smoke, melting or, potentially, fire.”
Honda’s remedy will be to replace the switches if damage is found and to add additional waterproof skirting to prevent future water intrusion.
