Honda Recalls 1.5 Million Units

Comments (0)
Honda is recalling approximately 1.5 million vehicles after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration officials called for updates in software that controls the automatic transmission in  2005-2010 Accords, 2007-2010 CR-Vs and 2005-2008 Elements. The software that needs updating controls the automatic secondary shaft bearing.

Affected cars can be damaged if the transmission is quickly shifted between drive, neutral and reverse, which is a sequence drivers often follow whe stuck in mud or snow. If the bearing is damaged in such a scenario, it can cause the engine to stall. 
Though no injuries or death have been reported related to this problem, Honda is encouraging all of their customers to visit a Honda dealership. “When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more important to the company than fulfilling our obligation and responsibility to alert our customers,” officials told the New York Times.

We applaud Honda for taking a necessary step to protect their customers. Thankfully, the company did not wait for people to be injured or lose their lives before stepping up and issuing this recall. As a personal injury lawyer, I've seen average people become victims because a large car maker did not prioritize the protection of their customers. As consumers, we place our trust in big businesses and the government to protect us in virtually all aspect of our lives.


If you're an owner of one of the recalled Honda car or SUV models, please call or visit your local Honda dealer as soon as possible. Don't wait until it's too late.
