If you are the owner of a 2015 Honda Fit hatchback, expect to receive a recall notice in the coming weeks from American Honda Motor Co. due to a defect that can lead to the vehicle stalling.
Roughly 17,800 Honda Fit vehicles in the United States are now under recall after the manufacturer discovered a problem with the electrical noise suppression capacitors in the original ignition coils. These can deteriorate with age and thereby increase the risk of an auto accident. There are no accidents related to this issue that Honda is aware of at this time.
While there have been no known crashes, a stalled vehicle is a dangerous situation under any circumstances and particularly in freeways where vehicles are at high speeds, said Attorney James Johnson.
Honda, which found the faulty ignition coil defect when customers made warranty claims, is asking owners to return the vehicles to have the plug top ignition coils replaced beginning on Oct. 6. Contact Honda’s customer service department at 888-234-2138 for more details.
