Honda to recall Accords sold in the Gulf image

The Japanese auto maker Honda has announced the recalling of the Accord cars of the 2008-2010 model years.

The Accord model which was sold in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region will be recalled because of a problem with the software that controls the automatic transmission which has been detected, but no complaints regarding this problem have been reported yet.

The Accord’s transmission’s secondary shaft will be damaged without an update if the gears are quickly shifted between reverse, neutral and drive, which can cause the bearing to brake leading in an engine stall or difficulty engaging the parking gear.

According to the car manufacturer, 2.097 Accord vehicles made between 2008 and 2010 will be affected by the recall and no accidents or injuries have been reported because of this problem.

The Japanese auto maker Honda will also recall two million cars globally, 1.5 million of them being sold in the US, 760.000 in China and 135.000 in Canada.
