The ANHC recall is not India specific, it is part of a global recall for all cars with this engine. They have done this to avoid legal issues in those countries,and not to earn brownie points per se. Engine issues are like coronary issues in humans, they can have serious ramifications. Honda badge, or rather credibility, as far as the ANHC is concerned will take a hit. Resale values of ANHC may also get affected,and will impact sales. FIAT may be a beneficiary of this. As it is, I am seeing a lot more new Lineas on the road these days, mostly MJDs'. I think buyers are increasingly finding these as the best value for money, and negative service images as overstated. Whereas, I still dont see many TJets on the road, I dont see any Ventos' either, nor for that matter any ETIOS.
