Honda and Acura vehicle recall announced for Ignition Switch Repair

Car recall - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced the recall of around 807,161 Honda and Acura vehicles. The recalled vehicles could roll away if the driver does not put the automatic-transmission car in park when the key is removed from the ignition.

Certain 2003-2006 models of the Acura MDX, 2003-2004 model years of the Honda Odyssey, and 2003-2004 model years of the Honda Pilot are involved in this recall. The passenger vehicles were manufactured between November 26, 2001 and August 30, 2006.

The ignition switch’s interlock lever could deform causing the interlock to malfunction in an automatic transmission car. If the driver fails to put the problematic vehicle in park, the car could roll away when the car has had the key removed.

Honda is planning to begin the recall process on or around February 7, 2013. They will be notifying vehicle owners on how to bring their cars into a Honda or Acura dealer. The dealer will be installing an updated shift interlock lever, or if needed, a new ignition switch. The repair and installation of the parts will not cost the vehicle owner. Vehicle owners can also contact Honda toll-free at 1-800-999-1009.
