AIR BAGS

Recall number: 13V412000
Recall date: 09/19/2013

Problem Summary:

HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2003 AND 2004 ODYSSEY AND MODEL YEAR 2003 ACURA MDX VEHICLES. DUE TO ELECTRICAL NOISE, A COMPONENT IN THE AIR BAG CONTROL MODULE MAY FAIL CAUSING THE FRONT AIR BAGS, SIDE CURTAIN AIR BAGS, AND/OR SEATBELT PRETENSIONERS TO DEPLOY INADVERTENTLY WHILE THE VEHICLE IS BEING OPERATED.

Consequence:

INADVERTENT DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIR BAGS MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY AND THE POSSIBILITY OF A VEHICLE CRASH.

Corrective Action:

HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSTALL A NOISE SUPPRESSOR UNIT, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON, OR ABOUT, OCTOBER 28, 2013. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009. HONDA'S RECALL NUMBERS ARE JC2 (HONDA ODYSSEY) AND JC3 (ACURA MDX).

This recall affects vehicles manufactured between 08/15/2002 and 03/17/2003.


ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH

Recall number: 12V573000
Recall date: 12/11/2012

Problem Summary:

HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2003 AND 2004 PILOT AND ODYSSEY AND 2003 THROUGH 2006 ACURA MDX PASSENGER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM NOVEMBER 26, 2001, THROUGH AUGUST 30, 2006. THE INTERLOCK LEVER OF THE IGNITION SWITCH MAY DEFORM, WHICH CAN ALLOW THE INTERLOCK FUNCTION OF A VEHICLE WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION TO BE DEFEATED.

Consequence:

REMOVAL OF THE IGNITION KEY WHEN THE GEAR SELECTOR OF A VEHICLE WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION HAS NOT BEEN SHIFTED TO THE PARK POSITION CAN ALLOW THE VEHICLE TO ROLL AWAY, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Corrective Action:

HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND INSTRUCT THEM TO TAKE THEIR VEHICLE TO A HONDA OR ACURA DEALER. THE DEALER WILL INSTALL AN UPDATED SHIFT INTERLOCK LEVER AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH, FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON, OR ABOUT, FEBRUARY 7, 2013. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009.


AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:DRIVER SIDE INFLATOR MODULE

Recall number: 11V260000
Recall date: 04/27/2011

Problem Summary:

IN DECEMBER 2011, THIS RECALL WAS EXPANDED TO INCLUDE AN ADDITIONAL 272,779 VEHICLES AND 640 AIR BAGS SOLD AS REPLACEMENT PARTS. BECAUSE HONDA IS UNABLE TO ASCERTAIN ON WHICH VEHICLES THE 604 REPLACEMENT AIR BAGS WERE INSTALLED, AN ADDITIONAL 603,241 VEHICLES ARE ALSO BEING RECALLED. THE TOTAL NUMBER OF VEHICLES BEING RECALLED IS NOW 1,709,477. THIS RECALL CONCERNS CERTAIN VEHICLES FALLING WITHIN THE FOLLOWING MAKE, MODEL, AND MODEL YEAR POPULATIONS, INCLUSIVE OF THIS EXPANSION: MODEL YEAR 2001-2002 HONDA ACCORD, MODEL YEAR 2001-2003 CIVIC 2-DOOR AND 4-DOOR MODEL, MODEL YEAR 2002-2003 CR-V, MODEL YEAR 2002-2003 ODYSSEY, MODEL YEAR 2003 ACURA CL, MODEL YEAR 2003 PILOT AND MODEL YEAR 2002-2003 ACURA TL VEHICLES. THIS RECALL IS RELATED TO A SERIES OF RECALLS ON THESE VEHICLES IN WHICH HONDA IS REPLACING THE INFLATORS WITHIN THE DRIVER'S SIDE AIR BAG TO ADDRESS A DEFECTIVE CONDITION. THIS RECALL ADDRESSES BOTH AIR BAGS THAT WERE ORIGINALLY INSTALLED IN THE VEHICLES, AS WELL AS REPLACEMENT AIR BAGS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED AS REPLACEMENT SERVICE PARTS. A REPLACEMENT AIR BAG MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED, AS ONE EXAMPLE, IF A VEHICLE HAD BEEN IN A CRASH NECESSITATING THE REPLACEMENT OF THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG.

Consequence:

IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH NECESSITATING DEPLOYMENT OF THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG, THE INFLATOR COULD PRODUCE EXCESSIVE INTERNAL PRESSURE THAT COULD CAUSE THE INFLATOR TO RUPTURE WITH METAL FRAGMENTS STRIKING AND INJURING THE DRIVER OR OTHER OCCUPANTS.

Corrective Action:

OWNERS OF ALL VEHICLES ON WHICH A DEFECTIVE AIR BAG MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED EITHER AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT OR AS A REPLACEMENT WILL BE NOTIFIED. DEALERS WILL INSPECT VEHICLES, AND WHERE A DEFECTIVE AIR BAG INFLATOR IS IDENTIFIED, THE INFLATOR WILL BE REPLACED, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON OR ABOUT JUNE 27, 2011. OWNERS OF VEHICLES INVOLVED IN THE DECEMBER 2011 EXPANSION WILL BE NOTIFIED IN DECEMBER 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009. THIS SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN IS RELATED TO RECALLS 08V-593, 09V-259, AND 10V-041.

The manufacturer first notified owners of this recall on 05/31/2011.


POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

Recall number: 04V176000
Recall date: 04/15/2004

Problem Summary:

ON SOME MINI VANS, SPORT UTILITY AND PASSENGER VEHICLES, CERTAIN OPERATING CONDITIONS CAN RESULT IN HEAT BUILD-UP BETWEEN THE COUNTERSHAFT AND SECONDARY SHAFT SECOND GEARS IN THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, EVENTUALLY LEADING TO GEAR TOOTH CHIPPING OR GEAR BREAKAGE.

Consequence:

GEAR FAILURE COULD RESULT IN TRANSMISSION LOCKUP, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A CRASH.

Corrective Action:

ON VEHICLES WITH 15,000 MILES OR LESS, THE DEALER WILL UPDATE THE TRANSMISSION WITH A SIMPLE REVISION TO THE OIL COOLER RETURN LINE TO INCREASE LUBRICATION TO THE SECOND GEAR. ON VEHICLES WITH MORE THAN 15,000 MILES, THE DEALER WILL INSPECT THE TRANSMISSION TO IDENTIFY GEARS THAT HAVE ALREADY EXPERIENCED DISCOLORATION DUE TO OVERHEATING. IF DISCOLORATION EXISTS, THE TRANSMISSION WILL BE REPLACED IF DISCOLORATION IS NOT PRESENT, THE DEALER WILL PERFORM THE REVISION TO THE OIL COOLER RETURN LINE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON APRIL 21, 2004, FOR PILOT, ODYSSEY, AND MDX OWNERS. OWNERS OF THE ACCORD VEHICLES WILL START RECEIVING LETTERS ON JUNE 28, 2004, AND ON JUNE 29, 2004, FOR OWNERS OF THE TL AND CL VEHICLES. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009 OR ACURA AT 1-800-382-2238.

The manufacturer first notified owners of this recall on 04/27/2004.

Recall number: 03V014000
Recall date: 01/16/2003

Problem Summary:

ON CERTAIN MINI VANS, SOME FUEL TANKS HAVE SURFACE IMPERFECTIONS THAT COULD ALLOW FUEL TO LEAK FROM THE TANK.

Consequence:

FUEL LEAKAGE, IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE, COULD RESULT IN A FIRE.

Corrective Action:

DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE FUEL TANK FOR SURFACE IMPERFECTIONS. IF ANY IMPERFECTIONS ARE FOUND, THE FUEL TANK WILL BE REPLACED. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN JANUARY 16, 2003. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009.
