Honda Recalls 1.5 Million Vehicles for Transmission Issue

August 08, 2011

WASHINGTON – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced Honda is recalling a total of 1,521,107 MY-2005-2010 Honda Accord, 2007-2010-MY CR-V, and 2005-2008 Element vehicles due to an issue with the automatic transmissions in these vehicles.

NHTSA stated the outer race of the secondary shaft bearing can break. A broken outer race can cause the malfunction light to turn on, abnormal noise, and allow contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing in the transmission. This can result in a short circuit, which would cause the engine to stall. Also, broken pieces of the outer race or ball bearing can become lodged in the parking pawl. This can result in the vehicle rolling after the driver places the vehicle in park.

The recall is expected to begin on August 31.
