Honda recalls nearly 46,000 Fit SportsApril 26, 2013 @ 6:44 pm
DETROIT (AP) - Honda is recalling nearly 46,000 Fit Sport small cars in the U.S. and Canada to fix a problem with the electronic stability control system.
The recall affects cars from the 2012 and 2013 model years. Honda says the stability control system can let the car tilt too far before it applies the brakes to prevent a crash.
The defect was discovered in government testing of models with a particular type of tires. Honda says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries from the problem.
Honda dealers will update the system's software free of charge. Owners will be notified starting in mid-May.
