Honda to recall 700,000 compact cars for spring

TOKYO — Honda is recalling nearly 700,000 Fit, Freed, and City compact cars around the world for a defective spring part that may cause the engine to stall.

No accidents have been reported related to the problem, but at least 72 complaints were filed in Japan, and 29 abroad, a Honda Motor Co. spokesman said.

Recalled are 167,000 vehicles in Japan, 156,000 in China, and 233,000 in the rest of Asia, Tokyo-based Honda said. About 122,000 cars are being recalled in North America.

The spring was placed improperly in a small box inside the engine, so that, in some cases, the problem could cause the engine to stall.
