Honda Cars India (HCIL) on Saturday said it will recall 42,672 units of second generation Honda City cars manufactured in 2007 and 2008 to replace their power window switch.

HCIL would carry out preventive part replacement of power window switch of 42,672 units of previous (2nd) generation Honda City, manufactured in the year 2007 and 2008, the company said in a statement.

The company will proactively replace the power window switch which may malfunction in case water or any other liquid enters the driver side window, it added.

HCIL is carrying out the part update as preventive measure although no such problem has been reported from any where in India. The replacement would be carried out free of cost at HCIL dealerships across India, and the owners will be contacted individually in a phased manner, the company said.

Honda Cars India is carrying out the part replacement as part of a global exercise by Honda Motor Company to ensure stringent quality standards for its products, it added.

However the third generation Honda City cars currently sold in India are not affected and does not require any part replacement. Also, global recall does not impact the Honda Jazz in India, it added.
