American consumers own approximately 1.5 million of these recalled vehicles.While most of the remaining ones are located in China and Canada, others are being recalled from Puerto Rico, Europe, the Middle East, Mexico and South America. All of Honda’s four-cylinder Accord sedans manufactured for model years 2005 through 2010 are included. In both Canada and the United States, the recall also extends to the CR-V Crossover (model years 2007 to 2010) and the Element SUV (model years 2005 to 2008).
According to Honda, the recall is due to software problems that can affect various vehicle transmissions. In a recent Reuter’s news article, one industry analyst said that if the software problem isn’t fixed, it would probably only affect drivers stuck in the snow or mud who might try to rapidly shift between the gears to extricate the vehicles. In other words, only under extreme circumstances is the current software glitch likely to prevent vehicle transmissions from operating properly.
