Honda is voluntarily recalling approximately 17,800 Fit compacts from the 2015 model year for faulty plug top ignition coils.
According to the Japanese automaker, the original plug top ignition coils may degrade over time, which in the worst case scenario, would cause the engine to stall. If the engine was to stall unexpectedly, it could possibly increase the risk of a crash. No crashes or injuries related to the issue have been reported and the faulty plug top ignition coils were first discovered through the warranty claim process outside the U.S.
