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.

"Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" Screening Event And Panel
As much as we wished this review of Honda’s refreshed-for-2014 Odyssey minivan focused solely on the rig’s awesome built-in HondaVac vacuum cleaner, it wouldn’t have been very useful to those of you actually interested in how well this minivan, you know, does minivan things. (We did, however, cover the vacuum in a separate, slightly informal test.) Given that none of the 2014 Odyssey’s changes are mechanical in n ...

2015 Dodge Challenger First Drive

Jul 21 2014 1:51pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

The latest Ford Mustang is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The next Chevrolet Camaro is rumored to be smaller, lighter and likely powered by a four-cylinder engine. But when Dodge updated the Challenger coupe for 2015, its new addition wasn't a four-cylinder engine — it was the tire-smoking SRT Hellcat model, powered by a jaw-dropping 707-horsepower, supercharged V-8. That's what Dodge thinks of the smaller, lighter, more e ...

Shoppers may face legitimate sticker shock when they're shopping for a new car. TV and radio advertisements may lead them to believe that new cars all get at least 35 mpg for less than $15,000, but the price of entry for even a modestly equipped new car is well above that.
