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.

Report: 2015 Honda CR-V performs poorly in Swedish AWD test [w/video]

Oct 24 2014 2:57pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Europe, Videos, Crossover, Honda Swedish auto magazine Teknikens Värld has never been afraid to call out automakers when a vehicle fails one of its battery of examinations. Its famous Moose Test recently caught the Porsche Macan out, and a few years ago, there was a protracted argument between Teknikens Värld and Jeep over the performance of a Grand Cherokee in that evaluation.
