The 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’s 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.
