Honda Recalls 800,000 Vehicles

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.
