Honda recalls Jazz after fire

2010-01-29 09:38
Honda SA has announced today a safety recall of the previous generation Jazz to inspect and modify driver door power-window switches that may, in some cases, short circuit as a result of water intrusion into the housing.

Following the tragic fire in September 2009 resulting in the death of satirist Justin Nurse's two-year-old daughter Vanilla, Honda has launched an extensive investigation to determine the cause of the incident.

While the cause of the blaze remains indeterminable, the investigation has shown that water intrusion into the power window switch housing could cause a short circuit.

As a precautionary measure, Honda has decided to implement a safety recall of all 2002-2008 year model Jazz units in South Africa.

Owners of 2002-2008 year model Jazz will be notified directly of this recall. Honda dealers will inspect the driver door power window switch and if water intrusion is observed, the switch will be replaced. In all cases a counter measure to prevent any water intrusion will be fitted.
