HONDA RECALLING 800,000 MINIVANS AND SUVs
Written By: Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP
Honda is recalling 800,000 minivans and SUVs because the key can be removed when the vehicle isn't in park. In some Honda vehicles, the mechanism that locks the key into the ignition can wear out, particularly if drivers repeatedly attempt to remove the key when the vehicle is not in park.
The recall involves about 318,000 Honda Odyssey minivans and 259,000 Pilot SUVs from the 2003 and 2004 model years. About 230,00 Acura MDX SUVs from the 2003 to 2006 model years are being recalled for the same problem. Two of the reported incidents resulted in minor injuries.
