Government considers expansion of Honda Accord recall
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government is studying whether it should expand past recalls involving the Honda Accord after receiving complaints of the car rolling away and crashing.
The government said Monday it has received 15 complaints of a failure of the ignition park-shift interlock system in the 2002-2003 Honda Accord.
In some cases, the car's key can be removed without it being shifted to park. Ten of the complaints said the car rolled away and crashed when the key was removed. No injuries were reported to the government.
A Honda spokesman did not immediately comment.
The problem led to two Honda recalls in the past five years. The government is studying whether it should expand those recalls to include about 680,000 2002-2003 Accords.
