Honda to recall nearly 500,000 CR-Vs
Tokyo: Japanese automobile giant Honda Motor Co. will recall about 489,000 CR-Vs sold in the US and the Europe over problems in the vehicles' power window switch, Xinhua reported.

The company found that rain water may enter the power window switch on the driver's door, which could eventually cause the switch to overheat and catch fire.

The automaker will be recalling about 220,000 CR-V sport utility vehicles in Europe, around 268,000 units in the US and less than 100 in Africa, a Honda spokeswoman said.

All the vehicles were produced between 2002 and 2006.

There have been reports of five switch fires, but no injuries have been reported related to the issue, the spokeswoman said.

The automaker did not give estimated costs for the recall. The recall follows Honda's announcement Oct 1 that it will recall around 603,000 Accord vehicles sold in North America to correct a fault discovered in power steering parts.
