Honda Recall
Honda Motor Co said on Thursday it is recalling 693,497 units of the Freed, Fit and City company models globally to fix a faulty spring that could cause the engine to fail to restart in the worst-case scenario although it will not impact the latest version of the City sedan.

In a statement, the company said it would carry out preventive part replacement of the lost motion spring in the valve train for 57,853 third-generation City models that were manufactured between November, 2008, and December, 2009.

"Lost motion springs, which are compressed by rocker arms in normal engine use, may bend or break over time, resulting in abnormal engine noise and potentially causing engine stalling and problems in re-starting, the company said.
In January 2010, Honda had recalled 8,532 units of its second-generation City sedan, manufactured in 2007, because of a defective power window switch that could cause fire.

In Calcutta, 1,200 Honda City owners have been called by the company for the replacement.
