Default Honda recalling 871,000 SUVs and minivans over rollaway fear

Filed under: Minivan/Van, SUV, Recalls, Safety, Crossover, Acura, Honda

Honda is recalling 871,000 SUVs and minivans for an issue in which the vehicles may roll away after the key has been removed form the ignition. 92 percent of the recalled vehicles, or 807,000 vehicles are in the US. According to a report from Reuters, the effected vehicles include certain numbers of the Honda Odyssey and Pilot, as well as the Acura MDX. Here are the recall figures:
  • 2003-2004 Honda Odyssey: 318,000 vehicles
  • 2003-2004 Honda Pilot: 259,000 vehicles
  • 2003-2005 Acura MDX: 230,000 vehicles
  • Additional Honda vehicles outside US: 64,000
The specific issue at the center of the recall pertains to the ignition interlock. A part of that system could become damaged or worn. As a result, the key could be removed, even if the car's transmission is in drive or the vehicle is still on.

A probe was opened into the issue after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration received 43 complaints, including several reported injuries. NHTSA found that the vehicles in these complaints rolled off, and some hit parked cars, fences, trees and mailboxes. One owner even reported a fractured fibula sustained while trying to stop an Odyssey that was rolling away. In February of 2013, Honda will commence the distribution of recall noticed to the vehicles in question.Honda recalling 871,000 SUVs and minivans over rollaway fear originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 12 Dec 2012 13:01:00 EST.
