Honda has announced it is recalling 172,000 Jazz models in Britain after a fire broke out in one of the superminis in South Africa last year, killing a child.
All the Honda Jazz models recalled will have the master power window switch examined. Owners of the relevant cars will be contacted by Honda.
Honda says that if it is exposed to large amounts of water, for example if the window is left open frequently or for long periods in heavy rain, the switch can malfunction, potentially causing a fire.
Although there have been no reported cases of this happening in the UK, all recalled cars will be fitted with a waterproof skirt to prevent water entering the unit.
Globally, 646,000 Honda Jazz models are affected.
