Honda recalls nearly 1 million cars
Global - Japanese car manufacturer Honda is recalling close to one million cars due to flaws in their transmissions and automatic window systems.
Its crossover hybrid models CR-Z have experienced issues in the transmissions systems which can cause the wheels to turn back and forth at will, leading Honda to fix some 23,000 cars made in the UK, the Inquirer reported.
"The problem occurs if the driver inadvertently causes the engine to stall. Depending on the IMA battery condition, temperature and electrical loads, the vehicle may start to move forwards or backwards depending on selected gear," a Honda spokesperson said.
He added that dealers will now be installing a software update to the IMA motor Electronic Control Unit free of charge to prevent the IMA motor reverse rotation.
Another 936,590 vehicles affected globally face problems with the automatic window systems.
Honda also recalled some 2.3 million vehicles in August due to issues with computer systems in their vehicles.
