2010 Honda CR-V

Honda has announced the voluntary recall of some 1.5 million Accords, CR-Vs and Elements from model years 2005 through 2010. Specific vehicles affected by this recall include 2005-10 Honda Accord models with four-cylinder engines, 2007-10 Honda CR-V models and 2005-08 Honda Element models, all equipped with automatic transmissions. 

When shifted quickly between reverse and drive, as when freeing a car stuck in snow or sand, damage to the transmission’s secondary shaft bearing can occur. As a result, the engine can stall or the transmission may be difficult to shift into the “Park” position.

Honda will upload a software update on affected vehicles, reducing the impact of changing quickly between forward and reverse gears, thus decreasing the possibility of transmission damage. To date, no accidents or injuries have been reported due to this condition.

Honda will notify owners by mail when the recall begins on or around August 31, 2011. To determine if their vehicle is included in the recall, owners may visit Honda’s recall website or contact the automaker via phone at (800) 999-1009, option 4.
