Recommended Posts

Was skimming through news on when I found this, and on further search on google found this.

Honda is recalling certain Fit subcompact cars from the 2009 and 2010

model years to fix a problem with their engines that could cause them

to stall unexpectedly.


has announced a recall of 700,000 Fits worldwide, with 97,000 in the

U.S., for a problem with valvetrain springs, which may break and cause

the engine to stall.

The recall has caused no injuries so far, yet Honda is taking no

chances: the recall covers the Fit, the Freed and the City models across

world markets. There are 122,000 vehicles affected in North America in

total, and the rest include 176,000 in Japan, 156,000 in China, and

233,000 in other Asian countries.

72 reports of the valvetrain problem in Japan prompted the recall, and 29 more complaints came from elsewhere in the world.

There are four spring assemblies that are part of a well-known Honda

system called VTEC, which controls the engine
