Default Honda Pilot, Odyssey models investigated for rollaway risk

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Safety, Crossover, Honda

The Office of Defects Investigation within the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is looking at the 2003 and 2004 Honda Odyssey (above) and Pilot (right) over a potential roll-away issue.

On vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions, the ignition park-shift interlock is the suspected culprit. A possible malfunction allows drivers to remove the key from the ignition even if the vehicle is not in Park. Vehicles have been said to roll away and collide with other objects.

Forty-three complaints, some apparently resulting in injuries, have triggered the agency's examination of approximately 577,000 vehicles. Honda says it will begin its own investigation into the matter as well.Honda Pilot, Odyssey models investigated for rollaway risk originally appeared on Autoblog on Sun, 07 Oct 2012 16:03:00 EST.
