Honda Motor to Recall 111,510 Minivans in Japan to Fix Problems With the Vehicles' Headlights

TOKYO September 9, 2004; The AP reported that Honda Motor Co. is recalling 111,510 minivans sold in Japan to fix problems with the vehicles' headlights.

Dealerships in Japan reported 42 cases of a defective seal around the headlamps letting in water, which short-circuited the lights, Honda said in a statement. There were no reports of accidents caused by the problem, it said.

Affected by the recall are 111,510 Stream minivans sold in Japan and produced between October 2000 and February 2002. The model is sold overseas but those vehicles are fitted with different headlights, Honda spokesman Kazuro Suda said.

The announcement comes after Honda on Tuesday said it was recalling 158,187 other cars sold in Japan, the United States and some 39 other countries to fix similar problems with headlights or faulty taping that covers electric circuits in the trunks of some vehicles.
