Honda Recalls More Than 800,000 Minivans, SUVs

Posted: Updated:

Honda is recalling more than 800,000 minivans and SUVs in the U.S. because they can roll away even though drivers have removed the key.

The recall affects 318,000 Honda Odyssey minivans and 259,000 Pilot SUVs from the 2003 and 2004 model years. Also included are 230,000 Acura MDX SUVs from the 2003 through 2006.

Honda says a system that stops the key from being removed unless the vehicles are in park can wear out. Eventually drivers can pull out the key while the minivans and SUVs are still in gear, and they can roll off and crash.

Honda says it has received a small number of complaints about the problem, including two that caused minor injuries.

Dealers will fix the problem for free. Owners will get notices starting in February.

Acura owners will be able to call 800-382-2238 for information. Information will also be available at the Web sites www.recalls.honda.com and www.recalls.acura.com.  (AP)
