A newly announced Honda recall “affects the 2007-2008 models of the Fit, which is sold in other countries as the Jazz and City.” This recall spans Asia, Latin America, Europe, South Africa and North America — 140,000 vehicles alone in the US.

Honda is recalling 646,000 Fit hatchbacks worldwide because of a glitch that could cause water to enter the power window mechanism, causing components to overheat.
