BEIJING, March 14 (Kyodo) — Honda Motor Co.'s local joint venture with Dongfeng Motor Corp. has notified Chinese authorities of a plan to recall a total of 459,962 units of the CR-V sport utility vehicle and other models to fix their defective horns free of charge.

The Chinese government's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said Wednesday drivers have found it impossible to beep the horn.
