Honda South Africa is recalling its previous generation Jazz, model year 2002 to 2008, in order to inspect and modify driver door power-window switches that the company says “may, in some cases, short circuit as a result of water intrusion into the housing”.

This follows a vehicle fire in September last year, in which two-year-old Vanilla Nurse died in Cape Town. The Jazz in which she was seated caught alight.

Following this Honda launched an investigation to determine the cause of the incident.

Honda South Africa says while “the cause of the fire remains indeterminable, the investigation has shown that water intrusion into the power window switch housing may, in some instances, cause a short circuit, which, in exceptional circumstances, may lead to potential damages.

“As a precautionary measure, Honda has decided to implement a safety recall of all 2002 to 2008 year model Jazz units in South Africa.”

The company says vehicle owners will be notified directly of this recall.

Honda dealers will inspect the driver door power window switch and if water intrusion is observed, the switch will be replaced.

In all cases a counter measure to prevent any water intrusion will be fitted.

Customers may contact Honda South Africa on 0800 HONDA1, or email care@honda.co.za.
