Honda recalls another 69,000 vehicles
Reuters | 2018/8/10

BEIJING -- Honda Motor Co. is recalling 69,090 UR-V crossovers in China because of a cold-climate engine problem that has already forced the recall of hundreds of thousands of vehicles.

The UR-V is produced and sold in China, the world's biggest auto market, by Honda's joint venture with the Dongfeng Motor Group.

As many as 18,907 vehicle recalls are linked to problems caused by an unusual amount of uncombusted gasoline that collects in the engine's lubricant oil pan, China¡¯s Defective Product Administration Center of State Administration of Market Regulation said on Thursday.

The problem in some cases has caused a strong odor of gasoline inside the vehicle and in other cases the vehicle's check-engine light came on, Honda has said.

The Japanese automaker says the problem does not affect the engine's performance and there have been no reports of accidents because of the problem.

Honda recalled 96,900 Avancier vehicles on Monday. The cold-climate engine problem also prompted the company to recall 130,000 CR-V crossovers and 294,500 Civics in China earlier this year.

Honda's China spokesman, Zhu Linjie, declined to comment on Thursday but he said on Monday the company was studying to determine if the same problem was affecting the Honda Jade and UR-V.
