Honda Recalls More than 800,000 Vans and SUV's

As reported by the LA Times last week, Honda is recalling more than 800,000 minivans and sport utility vehicles in the United States for a problem with the vehicles' ignition system, and this is not the first time for similar issues with Honda vehicles to be reported. The company, which has its North American headquarters in Torrance, California, is recalling 318,000 Honda Odyssey minivans and 259,000 Honda Pilot SUVs made in 2003 and 2004. Other vehicles also being recalled are the 230,000 Acura MDX SUVs made from 2003 to 2006.

This recall is a result of faulty ignition interlock mechanisms. Honda said that these mechanisms can become worn with use, making it possible to remove the key from the ignition without first putting the transmission in park. This can cause the vehicle to roll away and possibly crash.

According to Honda, this defect has caused several crashes and at least two reported injuries. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) database includes several complaints from Odyssey owners detailing experiences in which they were injured as their vehicles rolled away. One owner says his leg was run over and broken by his Honda when he tried to chase it down after it began to roll.

Honda will notify owners of this ignition issue by mail in February and affected owners can take their vehicles to Honda dealerships for repair work.

Our firm has represented clients regarding very similar failures in Honda vehicles in the past. If you own a Honda vehicle subject to this recall, please get informed and have the ignition problem fixed immediately.
