TOKYO November 25, 2006; Japan Today reported that Honda Motor Co said on Friday that it is recalling a total of 209,898 of its Mobilio and the Mobilio Spike small passenger cars for repairs of defective parts.

The brake lights and the gears of the vehicles, manufactured from November 2001 to May 2005, may fail due to a defective electric wiring system, Honda said in a report to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. From October 2004 to September this year, 41 cases of such defects were reported, including one in which a driver could not move the gear stick from the position for parking, Honda said.
