Honda is recalling more than 870,000 cars

Honda is recalling more than 870,000 minivans and SUVs worldwide, including more than 52,000 in Canada, because they can roll away even though drivers have removed the keys from the ignition.

They were big sellers with families because of their ample space and reputation for quality. Honda Canada says the recall will involve approximately 23,300 Honda Odyssey and 12,400 Honda Pilot vehicles from the 2003-2004 model years and about 16,600 Acura MDX vehicles from the 2003-2006 model years in Canada.

Mandatory backup cameras on all cars by 2014?

While the decision has already been delayed numerous times, NHTSA is expected to to deliver a ruling on mandatory back-up cameras by the end of the month. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood promised in letters to congressional leaders back in February that a decision would be made in the case by Dec. 31, 2012. The new law will make back-up cameras mandatory equipment for every new car, and if passed, will likely begin with model-year 2014 vehicles.

bmw recalls the x5

BMW is recalling nearly 250,000 X5 SUVs worldwide because a bolt can break and cause the loss of power-assisted steering. The recall affects X5 xDrive 35d models with diesel engines from the 2009 through 2012 model years. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the bolt holding a belt pulley can loosen and break. If that happens the SUVs can lose power-assisted steering, increasing the risk of a crash. If the bolt breaks, the SUVs still have manual steering, but it takes far more effort to turn the wheel, especially at low speeds. So far no crashes or injuries Read more and comment!
