Recall roundup: Honda Vezel Hybrid and Fit Hybrid

Honda has issued a new recall for the Vezel Hybrid and for the Fit Hybrid because of a problem with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission.

According to the Japanese based automaker, a total of 81,353 units of the new hybrid versions of the Vezel crossover, and the Fit hatchback, are the subject to a recall, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the transmission software glitch fixed.

“Honda sincerely regrets causing this considerable inconvenience to its customers due to the fact that the defect was not discovered during the development and product quality verification processes prior to the introduction of a new technology to the market and the defective product quickly came to market. Moreover, despite the fact that all relevant divisions at Honda worked together earnestly to solve this market quality defect, Honda deeply regrets that the effectiveness of the countermeasures was not adequately verified”, said Honda in a statement.

The affected Honda Vezel Hybrid and Fit Hybrid vehicles have been produced in Japan between July 2013 and February 2014. According to the company, a new control program has been developed, which will solve the issues with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Deliveries of the affected vehicles will be suspended until the installation of the new software program will be completed. For more details on the subject, owners of these models are advised to contact the car manufacturer.
