TOKYO — Japan’s Honda Motor said Thursday it is recalling more than 320,000 vehicles worldwide because of a door lock defect. The faulty locks could allow the vehicles’ doors to open unexpectedly, the automaker said, adding that its recall was for the 2012 CR-V sports utility vehicle and 2013 Acura ILX sedan. The vast majority of the recall is for the CR-V model, sold mainly into Japan, North America, China and South America. About 7,300 Acura models would be recalled from North America, the company added.
