Honda has announced the recall of 646,000 cars globally to fix a switch defect that could cause a fire.
Three cases of fires due to the defect have so far been reported – two in the US and one in South Africa.
The recall includes Jazz models, also known as Fit in some countries, built in Japan, China, Brazil, Thailand, Malaysia and India, Honda said.
In September, a two-year-old girl was killed in Cape Town when the car she was sleeping in caught fire.
The total number of recalls includes 619,000 Jazz, or Fit, models globally and 27,000 City models in Asia.
In the US, 140,000 vehicles are being recalled. Just over 171,000 Jazz cars in Britain will be recalled in March.
In a statement, Honda said a defective master switch could cause water to enter the power window switch and could, in some cases, cause a fire.
