Honda to recall 1.5 million vehicles in U.S. over stalls, shifting problems

08-06-2011 09:32 BJT

CHICAGO, Aug.5 (Xinhua) -- Honda Motor Co. will recall about 1. 5 million vehicles in the United States, to fix problems of engine stalls and vehicles shifting out of park, according to Detroit News reports on Friday.

Besides the recalls in the United States, the company will also recall 760,000 vehicles in China and 135,142 in Canada, the automaker said on Friday.

The recall covers the 2005-10 4-cylinder Accord, 2007-10 CR-V and 2005-08 Element models.

Honda said that the voluntary recall was prompted by concerns that the vehicles' transmission could be damaged if the driver shifts quickly between the reverse, neutral and drive positions, as may be done in an attempt to dislodge a vehicle stuck in the mud or snow.

Honda will update automatic-transmission control software in the affected vehicles to ease the transition between gears to reduce the possibility of damage.

Honda says that it will begin sending recall notifications to customers on Aug. 31.
