175,000 Honda Fit, Vezel Hybrids to fix software bug

Honda Motor Co has recalled all the Fit and Vezel hybrid cars it has sold in Japan since last year, due to a software flaw causing unintended acceleration, Bloomberg has reported. The recall, the fourth for new models of the best-selling Fit and the second for Vezel, will cover 175,000 vehicles, the Tokyo-based carmaker said. The carmaker received 11 reports of accidents from December to April related to the engine-control program, with no injuries or deaths, said Akemi Ando, a spokeswoman for the company.
