TOKYO (AFP) - Japan's Honda Motor said on 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 sport utility vehicle and 2013 Acura ILX sedan.

The vast majority of the recall is for the CR-V model, sold mainly in Japan, North America, China and South America.

About 7,300 Acura models would be recalled from North America, the company added.
