Recall Alert: Honda 1.5M

Honda Voluntarily Recalls 1.5 Million U.S. Vehicles

Aug 05, 2011



Four-cylinder Honda Accord cars from the 2005-2010 model years are part of the recall.

Honda is voluntarily recalling about 1.5 million U.S. vehicles to update software that controls the automatic transmission. If you own a 2005 to 2008 Honda Element, 2007 to 2010 Honda CR-V or four-cylinder Honda Accord from the 2005 to 2010 model year, you may be included in this recall. Honda says in a statement only certain vehicles are affected.

Apparently, the affected vehicles may suffer from a transmission malfunction in certain situations. Cars.com’s Kicking Tires reports, “If the transmission is quickly shifted between Reverse, Neutral and Drive — such as when the driver is trying to dislodge a vehicle stuck in mud or snow — the engine could stall, or it could be difficult to engage the parking gear.”

Honda received “113 claims, including 45 for engine stalls and 11 claims for vehicles moving shifting out of park,” reports The Detroit News.

The automaker says that no injuries have been reported due to transmission software problem. Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Honda starting at the end of August, and dealers will update the software for free. Honda says owners can also visit www.recalls.honda.com or call 1-800-999-1009 and select option 4 to find out if their vehicle is included in the recall.
