HÀ NỘI — Honda Vietnam is recalling 652 Accord and Odyssey cars to check faults and replace the mirror switch.
The recalling campaign will be conducted from December 25, 2017 to December 24, 2018.
Of the vehicles, there are 320 Honda Accord cars produced from 2012 to 2015 and the remaining Honda Odyssey were produced from 2015 to 2017. These cars were manufactured at Honda Automobile (Thailand) Company Ltd, and imported by Honda Vietnam.
The firm said that the vehicles’ contact surface treatment in the mirror control switch was not suitable. Long-term use could cause oxidisation, resulting in a rear-view mirror on the vehicle door that could automatically fold when the vehicle was running, parked or inactive when the switch was on. If that happens, the user’s vision would be affected, and might even cause danger to the user.
For other vehicles distributed by Honda Japan, Honda Vietnam was ready to check and repair the vehicles, if customers brought them to authorised dealers.
Honda vehicles would be checked and repaired free of charge. It would take approximately 12 minutes per vehicle.
In July, Honda Vietnam also launched a campaign to recall nearly 10,000 Civic, CR-V and Accord cars to replace the front airbags, as a precautionary measure, to ensure the safety of passengers
In August, the firm recalled 319 Accord cars produced from 2013 to 2015 to replace the battery sensor. — VNS
