Honda is set to recall over 428-thousand vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because of a safety defect.
The recall in the U.S. covers the Accord, Civic and Element models from 2003 and 2004. That accounts for over 380-thousand vehicles. A parallel safety recall in Canada also affects mostly Accords and Civics.
The Japanese car maker says in some situations, a part known as the ignition interlock lever could fail. The device is used to keep drivers from removing keys from the ignition when the vehicle has not been put in the park gear. If the ignition switch fails, that could allow cars to roll away when parked incorrectly. Honda says it will begin notifying consumers of the recall in September.
