Honda Civic, City & Jazz "Product Update Campaign"

Honda Malaysia announced a "product update campaign" - possibly a glorified recall for three of its model in Malaysia - the Civic (2006-2008), City (2006-2007) and Jazz (2005-2007).
The reason for the campaign is to "implement preventive measures against undesired technical issues". More after the jump.
