AFP: Japanese auto maker Honda said Thursday it was recalling around 90,000 units of two of its diesel car models in India over a potential defect in a fuel pipe.
Honda Cars India, the company’s Indian arm, ordered the recall of 64,428 units of its Honda City sedan and 25,782 units of multi-purpose Honda Mobilio vehicle manufactured between December 2013 and July 2015, the company said in a statement.
“There is a possibility that in some of these cars, the fuel return pipe may come out, resulting in fuel leakage and leading to engine stoppage.”
The company will replace the parts without any additional costs across India, the statement added.
Last week Volkswagen India announced the recall of around 323,700 cars in India, a move which followed its parent company’s involvement in a global pollution-cheating scandal.
