US: Honda recalls 225,000 SUVs and minivans in US, Canada
Honda is recalling about 225,300 SUVs and minivans in the United States and Canada to replace a part that if not operating could allow the driver to shift out of park without depressing the brake pedal.
According to Reuters, the automaker said in the United States it is recalling about 128,000 CR-V SUVs and 59,000 Odyssey minivans from the 2012 and 2013 model years, and 17,500 Acura 2013 RDX SUVs to replace a part of the brake shift interlock system.
In Canada, the recall affects about 14,000 CR-Vs, 4,500 Odysseys and 2,300 RDXs.
Honda said no customer complaints, accidents or injuries had been reported related to the issue, which was discovered during an internal investigation.
In subfreezing temperatures, after initial use of a vehicle's gear-shift mechanism, it may be possible to shift the transmission out of park without depressing the brake pedal, Honda said.
Recall letters go out in May.
