TOKYO: Japan's Honda Motor Co. said that it would recall more than 63,000 vehicles due to defects in their brake-light system and speedometers.
In a report filed with the transport ministry, Japan's second largest automaker said it will recall the Civic and Civic Hybrid sedans as well as Stream minivans manufactured between August 2005 and January this year.
The automaker said it received a total of 155 reports from customers about the two types of defects.
Honda said in some cases too much lubricating oil on the telescoping steering wheel system meant drivers were not able to move the gear shift lever from the park position, affecting the brake-light system.
In other cases, the minivan's speedometer did not function properly due to a computer glitch, the automaker said.
