Honda and Nissan Issue Recalls for Shift Interlocks and Brake Issues

By Grant Law Office on April 22, 2013 - Comments off

Honda has issued an auto recall for over 200,000 recent models with automatic transmission issues. The New York Times reports that the defective Hondas have automatic transmissions that can be shifted out of “park” if the brake pedal is not pressed down. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that the affected vehicles include 17,500 Acura RDX models from 2013, 128,000 CR-Vs from 2012-13, and 59,000 Honda Odyssey minivans from 2012-13. No injuries have been reported in connection with these vehicle defects.

Honda has had brake-shift interlock issues in the past, as well. In 2010, Honda recalled about 384,000 2003-04 models because the key could be removed when the vehicle was not in “park.” There were two other recalls because of this same issue in 2003 and 2005. Those three recalls affected 1.4 million vehicles.

Honda is not the only company issuing a recall this week. Nissan has brake issues that have resulted in the recall of about 14,000 Pathfinders and 5,000 Infiniti JX vehicles from the 2013 model year. Nissan reports that the front brake caliper assembly was not cast properly. This manufacturing error makes it prone to prematurely fail and crack. The defective brake caliper can move and contact the inside of the wheel resulting in reduced braking. It is not clear if this brake defect has resulted in any injuries.
