announced last Thursday that it plans to recall 693,497 cars around the world, including 30,252 in Indonesia.
The Jakarta Globe quoted the website of Honda Prospect Motor, Honda's sole agent in Indonesia, as saying that the recall would affect three popular Honda brands i.e. Jazz hatchback, City sedan and Freed minivans, produced between 2008 and 2010.
The recall will begin on 28 February in Java Island and 2 March outside Java Island. Honda will replace a component called " a lost motion spring " for engines in the three Honda brands.
I hope that other cars produced and/or sold by other car manufacturers in Indonesia are really safe although they are not recalled.
