Honda has issued a recall of more than 800,000 vehicles due to a potential issue that may see the vehicles start to roll away after being parked.

The recall covers three models, the Honda Odyssey and Pilot from the 2003 to 2004 model years, as well as the Acura MDX from the 2003 to 2006 model years.

For the Acura, it’s only those MDX models manufactured from November 26, 2001, through August 30, 2006.

According to Honda, the interlock lever of an affected vehicle’s ignition switch may deform, causing the interlock function of the automatic transmission not to work. Should the vehicle be left in park and the ignition key removed, there’s a chance it could start to roll away,  and possibly cause a crash.  

Honda will notify owners of the affected vehicles and instruct them to take their vehicle to a Honda or Acura dealership, which will install an updated shift interlock lever and, if necessary, replace the ignition switch, free of charge.

Honda will start contacting those owners in early February.

For further information you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 (reference recall campaign number 12V573000) or Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
