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.

Motor Mouth: Shivering through the last ride of the year

Oct 31 2014 5:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The last ride is always the best of the season. July and August are long gone, the dog days of summer barely a memory thanks to autumn’s constantly threatening skies. Oh, it’s still possible to putter around if you don enough woolies for an arctic expedition. Or, if you’ve got a fully-faired land yacht like a Gold Wing or a BMW, you can, if you absolutely insist, connect two distant destinations. Nonetheless, if yo ...

Spy Shots: Acura NSX prototype gets back on track

Oct 30 2014 1:40pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Spy Photos, Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Supercars, Acura, Honda Developing a new vehicle is not without its complications, we're sure, but usually things follow a fairly predictable progression: you develop a prototype, you test it, test it and test it again, then you put it into production. What you don't expect is that your prototype will burn to the ground, but that's what famously happened to the NSX which Honda engineers were testing ...
