Mumbai, February 2016: Continuing with its world-wide recall of vehicles to fix a potential problem with airbag inflators, Honda Cars India (HCIL) has asked for over 57,000 cars of the City, Jazz and Civic variants belonging to the previous generation to be brought back.

A press release from the Japanese automobile major said 49,572 City sedan, 7,504 Jazz hatchback and 600 units of the Civic premium sedan (which has since been discontinued) are being recalled. The airbag components will be replaced free of cost at HCIL dealerships across India starting from 20th February 2016.

Around half a million cars fall under the potentially dangerous category in the Indian subcontinent.

Last year, the company recalled 223,578 vehicles of previous generations of CR-V, Civic, City and Jazz under the same initiative.

HCIL also recalled 90,210 units of the diesel variants of City and the Mobilio MPV to fix a possible glitch in the fuel pipe, and asked for 3,879 units of the automatic variant of City manufactured from February 2014 to November 2014 to update the software that manages the continuously variable transmission (CVT) in order to optimize the hydraulic pressure applied to the CVT.
