Honda Motor Co. has issued a recall in Japan covering over 35,000 of its subcompact Fit automobiles. According to the automaker, the brake lamp in the Fit may not work due to the misapplication of a lubricant during manufacturing. Only vehicles made between December 2004 and May 2005 are affected, with no problems found with cars bound for the U.S. or other overseas markets. There have been nearly 2,000 reports of the problem from dealerships, but no crashes have resulted.
