WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government has opened an investigation into the subcompact Honda Fit after receiving complaints that the vehicle's low-beam headlights stopped working.
The preliminary investigation involves 133,000 Honda Fit vehicles from the 2007-2008 model years.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has received eight reports of low-beam headlights not working.
Honda says it is cooperating with the government's investigation.
Several of the consumers who complained said they had a wiring harness connector and a headlight switch replaced as a repair.
Vehicle defect investigations sometimes lead to recalls.
