Orlando Honda Recall Attorney Following Honda Recall with Interest

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 30, 2010

In a year full of noteworthy auto recalls, Honda has issued a recall for 384,000 of its Accord and Civic models for a defect in the shift interlock system. An investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration into earlier recalls to address the same problem prompted Honda to add 2003 Accords, 2003 Civics and 2003 and 2004 Elements to the recall. The shift interlock problems in these models allow owners to turn the vehicle off and remove the key without the automatic transmission being in the Park position.

Previous Honda recalls in 2003 and 2005 addressed the same shift interlock problem, which affected Honda models in earlier model years. Combined with this latest recall, Honda has recalled a total of 1.4 million vehicles to correct the potentially dangerous defect. In vehicles with automatic transmissions, the shift interlock mechanism is a necessary safety measure as it ensures that the vehicle must be in Park before the driver can remove the key from the ignition. In some documented cases involving these recalled Honda models, vehicles left in gear have rolled out of garages and driveways and caused accidents. If you’re a Florida resident injured in an accident caused by a recalled Honda Civic or Accord, Orlando product liability attorney James O. Cunningham may be able to help. Call him today at 888-425-2004 or 407-425-2000 to schedule a free consultation.
