The Honda CR-V

(TOKYO-AFP) – Honda will recall some 268,000 CR-V sport utility vehicles sold in the United States due to the risk of power window switches catching fire in case of water penetration, a report said Sunday.

The Japanese automaker will collect and repair free of charge CR-V vehicles produced between 2002 and 2006, although there have been no major incidents so far, Kyodo news agency reported.

No official at Honda’s head office in Tokyo was immediately available to confirm the report.

Honda’s US unit last Monday announced it would recall 572,000 mid-size Accords sold in the United States which were at risk of catching fire due to faulty power steering hoses.
