Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2008 Honda Fit vehicles

2008 Honda Fit (6/24/2013)  

Campaign Number: 13V260000

Component Name: VISIBILITY:POWER WINDOW DEVICES AND CONTROLS

Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

Description: Honda is re-recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Fit vehicles covered under previous recall 10V-033. The remedy applied in this earlier recall may have been insufficient. In the affected vehicles, over time, the plastic cover may separate from the master power window switch allowing water to enter the driver's window and reach the master power window switch. If the master power window switch is damaged as a result of the water intrusion, overheating and failure of the switch may result.

Defect: An overheated switch can cause smoke, melting and fire.

Corrective Action: Honda will notify owners in July 2013 and will instruct owners to take their vehicles to dealers to have a free inspection conducted. If the switch is damaged, it will be replaced free of charge. If the switch is not damaged, the owner will be instructed to await a second notification that will instruct them to return to the dealer to have a replacement switch installed free of charge. Honda anticipates it will have sufficient parts inventory to notify owners of vehicles with undamaged switches to return to dealers for replacement switches in Fall 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's recall number is JA6.
