Honda is recalling more than 6000 Jazz vehicles in New Zealand, over concerns about a faulty window power switch
Three fires have been caused in the vehicles overseas, after the power switches were exposed to heavy rain or spilt drinks.
Honda New Zealand General Manager Graeme Seymour told the NZPA that exposure to rain would not be sufficient to cause issues and assured owners they were safe to keep using their cars normally.
The recall will involve Honda Jazz models from 2002-2003 and 2006-2008 (excluding the current model) which used the circuit board supplied by one of two Honda contractors.
Used Japanese imports were not affected.
Seymour says the owners of the 6000 vehicles will be sent advisory letters and repairs will be arranged, if needed.
