The company, which runs operations in India through ajoint venture with the Siel Group -- Honda Siel Cars India(HSCI) -- said the recall will cover only the third-generationCity models that were manufactured between November, 2008, andDecember, 2009.

In a statement, HSCI said it would carry out preventivepart replacement of the lost motion spring in the valve trainof the City sedans being recalled.

"HSCI is proactively replacing the part in these vehicleswith a new improved part," it said.

The defective lost motion springs, which are compressedby rocker arms in normal engine use, may bend or break overtime, resulting in abnormal engine noise and potentiallycausing engine stalling and problems in re-starting, thestatement added.

"The replacement would be carried out free of cost andthe company will communicate directly with the owners of thecars which are covered under this part replacement," it said.

Dealerships have been updated about the part replacementand the new part is being dispatched to the dealerships inphases for smooth execution and to avoid any inconvenience tocustomers, HSCI said.

"HSCI is carrying out the part replacement as part of aglobal exercise by Honda Motor Company to ensure stringentquality standards for its products," the company said.

Honda Motor Co today announced that it is recalling6,93,497 units of its Freed, Fit and City models globally tofix a faulty spring in the engine.

"The global recall does not impact the Honda Jazz sold inIndia. The recall announced by Honda applies to certain unitsof Fit/Jazz fitted with 1.5L i-VTEC engine, which is sold inother countries and not sold in India," HSCI said.

The latest recall comes at a time when HSCI has beenstruggling to keep its sales counter ticking in India. In theApril-January period this fiscal, the company sold a total of51,044 units, compared to 49,600 units in the year-ago period,a growth of just 2.91 per cent, as against the industryaverage of about 30 per cent.

Watch world cup 2011 opening ceremony Livestreaming Online

The ICC Cricket World Cup is set to be ushered in with a grand opening ceremony here on Thursday as the game's showpiece event returns to the sub-continent after 15 years, shrugging off the controversy of Eden Gardens being stripped off a marquee match, involving co-hosts India.

The Bangladeshi capital, which has spruced up itself for the biggest event in their cricketing history, will take centrestage of the cricketing world with a two-hour spectacle of song, dance and laser shows at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.

Internationally-acclaimed rock star Bryan Adams, Indian singing trio of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Sonu Nigam will be among the performers to set the stage for the tournament, reflecting the increasing role the entertainment aspect has started to be associated with the game.

Two days later, Bangladesh and co-hosts India clash in the inaugural game at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium at Mirpur, on Dhaka's outskirts to herald the beginning of 43 days of action spread across 13 venues in three countries.

The other host country Sri Lanka start off their campaign against lowly Canada in a Group A encounter in Colombo on Sunday.

The sub-continent had its first date with the World Cup when India and Pakistan hosted it in 1987 before Sri Lanka joined them in 1996.

It is befitting that the World Cup will be held in the sub-continent this time when the region establishes itself as the nerve centre of the game, though 1992 champions Pakistan will not be one of the co-hosts and Bangladesh will be in the party in their silver jubilee year of initiation into one-day cricket.

The tenth edition of cricket's quadrennial showpiece, featuring 14 teams and 49 matches -- 29 in India, a dozen in Sri Lanka and eight in Bangladesh -- was not devoid of controversies.

It had a nightmare of an initial road as Pakistan was stripped of its rights to host 14 matches due to the volatile condition in the country, mainly after attack on the Sri Lankan players in Lahore in early 2009 though it will get its share of revenue even without holding matches.

The reasons for stripping Pakistan of the World Cup matches by the ICC had nothing much to do with the country's cricket board but it could not be said in the case of Indian authorities who failed to prepare the iconic Eden Gardens ready for the February 27 match between India and England.

With any marquee match involving India not scheduled in the Eden after the ICC shifted the India-England match to Bangalore, cricket lovers will not see the stadium in its magnificent best with nearly one lakh people turning up for a World Cup game and it is pity for a venue of such a fame.

On current form and considering the conditions, India have been billed as the top favourites by cricket experts and it would be a huge celebration for Indian fans if Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men lift the trophy on April 2 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

It would add to India's aura to its already muscle-flexing power as cricket's financial centre.

A World Cup win by India will also ensure the iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar the only success that has eluded him in his illustrious over two decade long international career, besides India bringing home the trophy after 28 years.
