Honda Malaysia today announced a product recall for 2,814 units of HR-V 2016 Year Model due to the possibility that the front stabiliser bar may break under high stress. All other Honda current selling models are not affected by this recall.

According to Honda Malaysia, the stabiliser bar breakage is due to insufficient temperature control during its production process, resulting in compromised strength of the stabiliser bar and thus, leading to possible breakage during high stress. Breakage of the stabiliser bar might cause wheels to be unbalanced, resulting in instability during a drive and the car pulling to the left or right.

As of today, there are no incidences of crashes or injuries related to this issue reported in Malaysia. Honda Malaysia is taking this preemptive measure to ensure customer safety and sincerely regrets the inconvenience caused to all affected customers.

All affected front stabiliser bars will be replaced with newly made parts. Currently, Honda Malaysia has 50% of the replacement parts in stock nationwide, and parts availability will be at 100% in mid-November 2017.

Honda Malaysia would like to assure all customers that the company is committed to its mission to maintain the best product performance; hence the proactive measure is being taken to avoid any possible damages or accidents.

All affected customers will be informed via notification letters, which will include details of the product recall. Customers who receive the letter are advised to send their vehicles to the nearest Honda authorised dealer nationwide for inspection and replacement. All cost related to this replacement activity will be borne by Honda Malaysia.

Honda Malaysia strongly encourages all affected customers to replace the affected stabiliser bar urgently once they receive the letter as its breakage can potentially lead to tyre puncture and instability.

Honda customers are urged to check their vehicle recall status either by logging on to www.honda.com.my or www.productrecall.honda.com.my today or by calling the Honda Toll Free number 1-800-88-2020.

I told you so. I told you so.
About China and their announcement of electric cars, this will change the world of automobile transportation.
One time I talked with DanielGR about the future prospects of electric cars at TOV. He was pessimistic about it in reality. I think he said something like it's exactly not about technological issues but rather economical, political. I agreed in principle but said it's up to China because of their political system, a communist politburo sits above anything of the government. So when they decides to switch over to hybrids or full electrics or anything they will do it and that will change it because they singlehandedly could change the demand and supply of the world. Any automobile companies who want to sell their cars there would have to change their plans.
Check out SHENZHEN, China. They're going full electric there I think. There's almost no smog in the sky, the blue sky. That's one reason. Another reason is that they think they can't catch up with Germany and Japan in petrol engine technology because they're at least 50 years behind. Yes, they bought Volvo and so but ... Another reason was there aren't too much petrol cars' infrastructures in place China yet. So spending the money for it now and then replace it later again is a waste of money and time. Just like cellphone revolutions in the 3rd world countries they actually progressed faster than the developed countries simply because the developed countries had the hardwired telephone lines in place and the they had to replace them as they went grow cellphone networks.
So I think in next 10-20 years we will see the clear directions of electric or hybrids or whatever away from petrol engine cars around the world, unless we'll encounter some wars around the world and bomb the hell out of each others. (i still write like a shit. i'll never learn. darn.)
