Huge Honda CR-V recall over car fire fears

Honda has said it will recall nearly 500,000 cars after a fault was found that could lead to the driver’s door catching fire.

The Japanese carmaker said the recall was announced after it found water may enter the power window switch on the door, which could ultimately cause the switch to overheat, melt and catch fire.

It said the recall affected about 489,000 CR-V sport utility vehicles (SUVs) in Europe and the United States.

Honda said all the recalled vehicles are from model years 2002 through to 2006.

There have been reports of five switch fires, but no crashes or injuries have been reported related to the issue, Honda said.
