Default "Et tu HONDA?" Yeah, 400,000 [more] Of 'Em Under Recall!

IGNITION SWITCH?

For decades Ford was notorious for poor-quality ignition and
transmission systems. Many are not convinced these are still not
thorns in Ford's side.

But Honda?

Uh-umm...

"Honda recalling nearly 400K vehicles"

By KEN THOMAS

WASHINGTON -- Honda Motor Co. is recalling the popular Accord and
Civic passenger cars to address problems with an ignition switch that
could allow the key to be removed without the transmission being
shifted into park, its third recall over the problem since 2003.

Honda said the most recent recall involved 384,220 vehicles and
includes 2003 model year Accord and Civics and 2003-2004 versions of
the Honda Element. Honda told the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration that the defect with the automatic transmissions could
lead to a vehicle rolling away and increase the risk of a crash.

The Japanese automaker said in a statement the recall would involve
about 197,000 Accords, 117,000 Civics and 69,000 Elements. The company
said it has received several complaints about the ignition interlock
and "is aware of a small number of related incidents, including one
that resulted in a minor injury."

Honda said the ignition interlock mechanism could be damaged or worn
during use and "it may become possible to remove the ignition key when
the shift lever is not in park." Unless the parking brake is set, the
vehicle could roll away under those circumstances and lead to a crash.

The three related recalls have involved about 1.4 million vehicles
since 2003. Honda recalled more than 560,000 minivans and sedans,
including the 1998-99 Accord, to correct the ignition park-shift
interlock defect in October 2003. In January 2005, Honda recalled
nearly 490,000 passenger cars, including certain 1999-2002 Accords,
because of the ignition switch problem.

The latest recall followed an investigation opened by NHTSA in January
2009 after the government received 16 complaints about the failure of
the ignition interlock in 2002 and 2003 Accords. Eleven of the
complaints alleged that the failure of the interlocks led to rollaway
crashes.

The recall of the Accord, Civic and Element is expected to begin in
late September. Dealers plan to remove an interlock pin and lever
within the ignition switch and replace them at no charge.

Can't prove that by me, my oldest Ford product, with an automatic is nearly
40 years old and the original tranny and it is fine, as is it electrical
systems. Same is true of the electrical systems on my 35 and 50 year old
Ford vehicles, that have a standard shift tranny.

The fact is all manufactured produce have a failure rate up to 2%, that is
why they all have a warranty even Rolls Royce

Wrong. The warranty is there to get you to trust in the product and buy
it. If it were for repairs then firms would be out of pocket just like
Mazda with the rotary engine.

2003? Really? A part MIGHT wear out? Really? Who would have thought
that over 7 years of operation that a part could WEAR OUT?

What a stupid reason for a recall.

That may be your opinion but I currently own four vehicles and have
purchased over seventy vehicles in my time. Of all of those vehicles only
two, a Chevrolet way back in 1951 and a very expensive 1999 Lexus, required
a warranty repair.

The fact is, even extended warranties are a money maker for the vehicle
manufactures. Less than 2% of all the extended warranties sold in the US,
ever pay out more than the cost of the warranty and the deductibles.

If I could receive a discounted price for forgoing a warranty, I would do
so.
