Over 2.26 million vehicles will be recalled in U.S, China and Brazil, India could follow suit
If you have a Honda Accord or CR-V that was built between 2005 and 2010, then there is a chance that your car could be recalled by Honda over a faulty gearbox issue. The recall is issued because the ECU software may lead to the damage of the secondary transmission shaft and breakage of the bearing if quick shifts are made between Neutral, Reverse and Drive modes.
The damage could lead to sudden stalling of the engine or free-roll of the wheels even in Park mode. Honda will upgrade the ECU software on the recalled vehicles to prevent the possibility of the damage. The recall begins in the U.S, China and Brazil after August 31st, however there is no word from HSCI yet, if the Accord and CR-V models sold in India would require the fix too.
