ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Honda has announced a recall for 2003-model Accords and Civics, and 2003-04 Elements. This is in connection with an ignition key interlock issue. If the mechanism becomes damaged or worn, it might be possible to remove the ignition key without the automatic transmission being in Park. If the parking brake has also not been engaged, there's a chance the vehicle might roll away. Honda says this has happened a "small number" of times and one such occasion "resulted in a minor injury."

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are potentially 384,220 cars that might be affected. Honda breaks that figure down to about 197,000 Accords, 117,000 Civics (two- and four-door models) and approximately 69,000 Elements. Customers will be notified by Honda in late September. After September 20, owners can check if their cars need repairing by contacting Honda on 1-800-999-1009 and by selecting option 4, or going to recalls.honda.com. This is Honda Safety Recall number R44.
