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.
