Recall roundup: 807,000 Honda vehicles

The Japanese based automaker Honda has announced a recall for 807,000 units of its models because of a possible roll away problem.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 807,000 units of the 2003-2004 Honda Odyssey and Pilot and the 2003-2006 Acura MDX will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers. The NHTSA says that there may be a malfunction of the ignition interlock feature which might allow the ignition key to be removed without the transmission being in Park.

“Some complainants allege that their vehicles came to rest after hitting multiple parked cars. One complainant alleged being knocked down as she tried to get into the vehicle to stop it as it rolled and another reported having hurt her knee when she attempted to stop the vehicle from rolling away”, as the NHTSA is saying in its official press release.

Approximately 318,000 units of the Honda Odyssey, 259,000 units of the Honda Pilot and 230,000 units of the Acura MDX will be affected by this recall. Dealers have been informed and the models will be inspected and repaired free of charge. The recall will begin in February. Meanwhile, owners are advised to contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
