Honda Recalls 962,000 Cars Worldwide

TOKYO (AP) - Honda says it will recall a total of 962,000 cars worldwide to fix power windows and computer systems.

Honda says it will call back 936,000 units of the Fit subcompact, CR-V crossover and Fit Aria in North America, Asia, Europe and Africa. The Fit is called Jazz in some overseas markets, while the Fit Aria is also known as City.

Honda says the recall was prompted by defects in driver's-side power window switch units, which could potentially melt and catch fire. A total of 26,000 CR-Z compact hybrids will also be recalled
globally because of programming problems with the engine control unit.

Honda says there have been no injuries because of the defects.
