TOKYO - Honda Motor Co. will recall 72,597 Elysion minivans over a defective lock on their sliding doors, Japan's transport ministry announced.

Japan's No. 2 automaker said it had received 27 complaints about the locking mechanism defect in the minivans, but no reported accidents, according to documents filed Thursday with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

The company plans to replace the defective locks on the affected vehicles, manufactured between April 2004 and November 2006, the documents said.

It was not immediately clear if any of the minivans had been sold overseas.

Honda also plans to recall 7,219 Civic Hybrid sedans over a voltage converter defect that could cause a short circuit that would stop the engine and prevent it from restarting, according to separate documents filed with the ministry Thursday.

The company received information about the defect from unspecified overseas locations, but no reported complaints or accidents, according to the documents.

Honda plans to notify owners of the affected vehicles manufactured between September 2005 and September 2006 by direct mail and repair the defective part, the documents said.

Honda recalls 45,000 Civic Hybrids

TOKYO — Honda Motor Co. plans to recall 45,335 Civic Hybrid sedans worldwide to repair an electrical defect that could stop the cars’ engines, a company spokeswoman said Friday.

Japan’s No. 2 automaker plans to recall 7,219 of the vehicles sold domestically and another 38,116 sold overseas, mostly in the U.S., a Honda spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity, citing company policy.

Honda learned about the defective voltage converters — which could cause a short circuit that would stop the engine and prevent it from restarting — from overseas reports, the company said in documents filed Thursday with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

Honda has received no reports of accidents related to the defect, the documents said. The affected vehicles were manufactured between September 2005 and September 2006, they said.

In Japan, Honda plans to notify affected vehicles’ owners by mail and to repair the defective parts, the spokeswoman said.

The overseas recalls and repairs will be handled according to local laws, she said, without giving further details.

Honda also plans to recall 72,597 Elysion minivans due to defective sliding door locks, according to separate documents filed Thursday with the ministry. The model is sold only in Japan, the spokeswoman said.

Honda has received 27 complaints about the locks, but no reports of related accidents, the documents said.

The company plans to replace the defective locks on affected vehicles, manufactured between April 2004 and November 2006, they said.
