    Summary

    HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012-2013 CR-V, ODYSSEY, AND MODEL YEAR 2013 ACURA RDX VEHICLES. DURING SUB-FREEZING TEMPERATURES, THE BRAKE-SHIFT INTERLOCK BLOCKING MECHANISM MAY BECOME SLOW AND ALLOW THE GEAR SELECTOR TO BE MOVED FROM THE PARK POSITION WITHOUT PRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL. AS SUCH, THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD 114, "THEFT PROTECTION AND ROLLAWAY PREVENTION.

    What Owners Should Do

    HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND INSTRUCT THEM TO TAKE THEIR VEHICLE TO A HONDA OR ACURA DEALER. THE DEALER WILL INSTALL AN UPDATED BRAKE SHIFT INTERLOCK BLOCKING MECHANISM FREE OF CHARGE.

    Summary

    HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012 HONDA CR-V AND MODEL YEAR 2013 ACURA ILX VEHICLES. IF THE MANUAL OR POWER DOOR LOCK IS ACTIVATED WHILE AN INTERIOR FRONT DOOR HANDLE IS BEING OPERATED BY AN OCCUPANT, THE CABLE CONNECTING THE INTERIOR DOOR HANDLE TO THE DOOR LATCH MECHANISM MAY BECOME LOOSE AND MOVE OUT OF POSITION. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE CABLE CAN MOVE FAR ENOUGH OUT OF POSITION TO PREVENT THE DOOR FROM PROPERLY LATCHING.

    Consequence

    IF THE DOOR IS NOT FULLY LATCHED, THE DOOR MAY OPEN WHILE DRIVING OR IN A CRASH, INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY TO THE VEHICLE OCCUPANTS.

    What Owners Should Do

    HONDA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FRONT DOOR LATCH ASSEMBLIES IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, FREE OF CHARGE. ADDITIONALLY, THE INTERIOR FRONT DOOR HANDLES IN CERTAIN HONDA CR-VS WILL ALSO BE REPLACED, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON, OR ABOUT, AUGUST 16, 2012.
