Honda has said it was recalling nearly 127,000 City and Fit cars in Brazil over a pedal defect that could cause unwanted acceleration.
One accident had been reported related to the defect, but no-one was injured, the Japanese car maker said.
The problem cars were made in Brazil from May 2008 and October 2010 and sold only in Brazil.
A total of 126,774 are being recalled.
Dust particles may get inside the accelerator pedal's sensor, causing the pedal in some cases to get stuck and the car is unable to stop, according to Tokyo-based manufacturer.
The problem would be fixed by placing a cover to prevent particles from getting in the pedal, Honda said.
