Honda Malaysia has issued a precautionary recall for the following Honda models: BR-V, HR-V, City and City Hatchback. 1527 cars are affected.

For the HR-V and BR-V, the recall relates to the inspection of the bolt earth grounding tightness.

This may cause poor contact on the terminal and result in the engine halting while driving or unable to start the engine after the car stops. The models affected are 343 units of HR-V 2020 Year Model and 116 units of BR-V 2021 Year Model.
