    Here's the reason behind the recent Honda Malaysia recall -

    Honda Malaysia recall City

    As mentioned above, there are two different reasons behind the recent recall. As for the City and City hatchback, the recall is done as a precautionary measure to check the nut tightening on the ACG terminal of the powertrain harness. If compromised, the issue may lead to battery malfunction and poor contact terminal which in turn can lead to engine halt (while driving or starting after the car stops).

    Honda HR-V recall

    As for the HR-V and BR-V, the said recall is also being conducted as a precautionary measure. However, here the automaker will inspect the bolt tightening of earth grounding.
    If remained uncorrected, it might lead to a loose wire harness which again can cause the engine to halt.
