Guess what ... the faulty trannies are made in JAPAN, not in the USA. The USA guys just assemble, etc. So much for that theory

Right, this is totally a design flaw. Can't blame the grunts for this one.

Junkster, who wonders how the recall will affect Honda's rep points

Work ethic is a very weak excuse. The companies are the ones in charge of making sure products are consistent whether they are built in germany, japan, or north america.

And one day after the JD Power survey, which placed Honda as the top non-luxury brand. This can't be good for PR.

This recall isn't official until 7/9/04. We don't even have the oil jet kits allocated yet. The bulletin even shows as "preliminary" in water marking on the pages. Basically, nothing can be done to the cars that fall under this bulletin yet. Once they release the bulletin that isn't a draft, they'll allocate the parts for the fix. In other words, don't go calling your dealer yet. We aren't permitted to perform the inspection for this bulletin until the draft is lifted and the parts are readily available.

Honda recalls a quarter-million Accords

Air Bags Prompt Recall of 257,616 Hondas
Business - Reuters

DETROIT (Reuters) - Japan's Honda Motor Co. is recalling 257,616 of its Accord sedans from the 2004 and 2005 model years because of potentially faulty air bags, U.S. federal safety regulators said on Monday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said a tear may occur in the driver's side front air bag of the Accords, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

The recall is expected to begin on Dec. 6 and owners of the vehicles affected should contact the U.S. division of Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

LX V6. He wished he could have had the EX V6, better yet, the IMA, but since his company is providing the car, he was just glad to have a V6, let alone an Accord instaed of the Intrepid he had.

You mean a butt lift.

The tear probably has to do with how/where it sits in the dash - probably not the same in the TSX/Euro Accord.

Honda can't even find out what is really causing these fires and they blame the dealers.

I recently seen a co-worker's brand new '04 CR-V EX catch on fire w/ only 4,1xx miles on it! So sad!

well i found the NHTSA announcement and what exactly is effected. It's all Accords. Also, note it's from an American counsel, which would lead me to believe they would specify Acura TSX if we were effected. click here

I read somewhere the problem is with oil leaking on the exhaust manifold after an oil change. And the leak is caused by the fact that the previous filter's gasket (the original I guess) gets stuck to the block and is not removed before the new filter is put on.

Honda/Acura recall 486,000 cars


Auto maker says keys can be removed from ignitions on some models without shift in 'park' position.
February 2, 2005: 12:23 PM EST

NEW YORK (Reuters) - American Honda Motor Co. said Tuesday it will recall 486,000 Hondas and Acuras to repair ignition switches.

Honda (Research) set the recall to repair ignition switch interlocks, which prevent removal of the ignition key unless the shift lever is placed in the "park" position, the company said in a press release.

Some interlock levers may be improperly dimensioned, the company said, possibly allowing a driver to switch the ignition off and remove the key without putting the shift lever in the "Park" position.

The recall involves automatic transmission equipped vehicles -- manual transmission equipped vehicles aren't affected.

Included in the recall are certain 1999 to 2002 Honda Accord models and all 1997 to 2001 Prelude models as well as some 1999 to 2000 Acura TL sedans.

American Honda, a unit of Japan's Honda Motor Co., will make the repairs free of charge.

Details regarding mailing dates and affected vehicles will be available on the Honda and Acura Web sites Feb. 4, 2005. Top of page

Strange. I know the ignition on a manual needs to interact with the clutch kill switch but I didnt think they would be all that different.

Hmm...design defect, perhaps, but unless the car is in Park, who the hell is actually going to try to remove the key?

Regardless, good of them to notify and fix.

Negligence.... I remember I once forgot to put my car in park after I turned off the engine, but it wasnt going anywhere as I always pull the ebrake first so it wasn't that bad...

Then again you could be a girl I know who went to work and locked her keys in the car...while the car was still running and she didnt realize it until 4 hours later when she got off from work..

ROFL I did that once at work ... Left the keys in the car, running with the door open for at least a few hours. Came out and the car was still running.

Honda recalls more than 85,000 minivans in U.S.

Honda recalls more than 85,000 minivans in U.S. - - Reuters / August 03, 2005 - - Source: Automotive News

DETROIT -- Honda Motor Co. Ltd. will recall 85,154 2005 model year Odyssey minivans in the United States to fix potential problems with their frontal air bag systems, federal safety regulators said on Wednesday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the problem stemmed from two external impact sensors that may have been insufficiently sealed during the manufacturing process.

If water enters the sensor corrosion can occur, possibly causing a short circuit, NHTSA said.

It added that front impact sensor failure could cause a delay in or loss of frontal air bag deployment, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

The Honda recall is expected to begin on Aug, 29, NHTSA said.
