SEOUL, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Japanese automaker Honda Motor will recall some 1,400 cars in South Korea for defective power window switch, the transportation ministry said Wednesday.

Honda Korea, the local importer and distributor of Honda Motor, will recall 1,403 CR-V utility vehicle models that were manufactured between Oct. 5, 2005 and July 11, 2006, the Ministry of Land, Transportation and Maritime Affairs said in a statement.

The cars subject to recall have defective power window switch on the driver side that could cause a fire due to worn-out switches, according to the statement.
