Japanese auto major Honda on Monday said it will recall 72,115 units of its mid-sized sedan City in India to replace defective power window switches as part of a global exercise.

The company, which is present in India through a joint venture with the Siel Group - Honda Siels Cars India - said the recall would cover the second generation City that were manufactured from 2005 to 2007.

"HSCI is carrying out the part replacement as part of a global exercise by Honda Motor Company to ensure stringent quality standards for its products," the company said in a statement.

The replacement would be carried out free of cost and the owners will be contacted to carry out the exercise smoothly, it added.

"Although no incident has been reported in India, HSCI is extending the same exercise to the previously sold Honda City manufactured in 2005 to 2007," the company said.

Earlier, HSCI had announced a similar recall in January last year for 8,532 units of the City, manufactured in 2007.

The company, at present, sells the third generation of the City, which is not affected by the recall exercise, HSCI said.

Honda Motor Co is recalling 9.36 lakh cars, including hatchback Jazz, City and sports utility vehicle CR-V, globally due to defective power window switches.

HSCI, however, said the global recall does not impact the Jazz and CR-V sold in India.
