Third Major Honda Recall
Posted By Power & Brown, LLC
The AP (8/10, Thomas) reports that Honda is recalling some 384,000 of its "popular Accord and Civic passenger cars to address problems with an ignition switch that could allow the key to be removed without the transmission being shifted into park, its third recall over the problem since 2003." Honda informed NHTSA that "the defect with the automatic transmissions could lead to a vehicle rolling away and increase the risk of a crash." The AP notes that with this action, some 1.4 million Hondas have been recalled for this defect.
