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.

Best Value in 2014 – Ninja 100 A declining youth motorcycle market that seem more interested in tiny mobile screens than taking part in real life have worried motorcycle manufacturers for some time. Along with the Great Recession that prevented those who wanted a motorcycle from actually being able to buy one, both effects have combined to cause a nasty downturn in US sales in recent years. That in turn has forced manufacturers to produce exciting, affordable products that capture t ...
