Honda Recalls 384,000 Vehicles Over a Familiar Problem
The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
Honda is recalling an additional 384,000 2003-4 models after a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation into whether two earlier recalls for the same problem covered all the defective vehicles.
The new recall covers some 2003 Accords and Civics as well as some 2003-4 Elements. The problem is that a defect in the shift interlock system could allow the vehicle to be turned off and the key removed without the vehicle’s automatic transmission being in Park. That could allow the vehicle to roll away.
