Honda City 2nd Generation Defective?

Extract from Star Motoring, The Star dated 28 Feb 2010:

PETALING JAYA: If you own either a second-generation 2008 Honda City or a first generation 2003 Jazz, Honda Malaysia is recalling your vehicles for product update.

According to the local Honda distributor, those two models could have power window master switch failure with the possibility of short circuit or fire.

However, as of today, there were no faulty cases reported in Malaysia (abis yg aku tukar actuator sampai 3 kali tu ape?)

The recall will involve some 12,935 units of City with 7,713 units of V-TEC and 5,222 units of i-DSI variants respectively.

As for Jazz, there are 3,090 units of 1.4-litre Japan-made units in Malaysia.

Honda Malaysia managing director and chief executive officer Toru Takahashi said the company would bear all charges incurred in the inspection and replacement work.

"We would like to assure our customers that all current selling models are not affected."

For details, call Honda toll free number at tel: 1-800-88-2020, or visit any authorised Honda dealer.

Mr Takahashi, while you are at it, why don't you admit the problem with the jet sound at my gearbox is your manufacturing problem and do something about it, instead of saying "it's like that one!!!" whenever I complained?
