Honda issues massive vehicle recall

Soccer moms all around the world are going to be horrified when they hear this, Honda has recalled 800,000 of its vehicles including Odyssey minivans. The recall covers 318,000 Odyssey minivans, 259,000 Pilots from 2003 to 2004 and 230,000 Acura MDX SUVs from 2003 to 2006. The 800,000 new cars brings the total to 2.2 million recall for the exact same problem.

The problem that the recall is addressing is the fact that the vehicles have a flaw that could make them simply rollaway even if in park. Honda says that since it started the initial recall 42 additional vans have rollaway when placed in park.

It's unclear exactly what the fix will be, presumably this has something to do with the transmission. I'm not sure what's with all the large and widespread recalls in the automotive industry lately.

Jul 31 2014 7:11am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Performance, Europe, Hatchback, Nissan Europeans get very serious about their hot hatches. So do the Japanese. In fact there's been a whole back-and-forth lately over who makes the fastest one, and now Nissan looks set to throw its racing hat into the 'Ring. That would be the Nürburgring, of course, where automakers trade bragging rights like baseball cards - only they don't give them up willingly. Renault set the front-drive lap record in 2008 with the prev ...
