Honda is recalling a subcompact vehicle due to an electrical problem.

The automaker issued the recall this week for certain model year 2015 Fit vehicles. The affected vehicles may experience damage to the wires inside the Plug Top Ignition Coils (PTC) due to improper protection against electrical noise.

If the wires become damaged, the coil may overheat and cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda believes that almost 18,000 vehicles are potentially affected by the issue.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Plug Top Ignition Coils with new design, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on October 6, 2015.

Vehicle owners with questions about this recall should contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138.
