Recall Alert: 807,000 Honda SUVs, minivans


Honda has issued a voluntary recall of 807,000 minivans and midsize SUVs due to a problem with the ignition interlock mechanism that could cause the vehicles to roll away while parked, according to the automaker. Honda said it already has received several complaints of such malfunctions, and two minor injuries have been reported.

The recall affects 318,000 Honda Odyssey minivans and 259,000 Honda Pilot SUVs, all from the 2003-04 model years, in addition to 230,000 model-year 2003-06 Acura MDX SUVs.
