Honda is recalling certain model year 2003 and 2004 pilot and odyssey and 2003 through 2006 acura mdx passenger vehicles manufactured from november 26, 2001, through august 30, 2006. the interlock lever of the ignition switch may deform, which can allow the interlock function of a vehicle with an automatic transmission to be defeated.

Summary:
In december 2011, this recall was expanded to include an additional 272,779 vehicles and 640 air bags sold as replacement parts. because honda is unable to ascertain on which vehicles the 604 replacement air bags were installed, an additional 603,241 vehicles are also being recalled. the total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,709,477. this recall concerns certain vehicles falling within the following make, model, and model year populations, inclusive of this expansion: model year 2001-2002 honda accord, model year 2001-2003 civic 2-door and 4-door model, model year 2002-2003 cr-v, model year 2002-2003 odyssey, model year 2003 acura cl, model year 2003 pilot and model year 2002-2003 acura tl vehicles. this recall is related to a series of recalls on these vehicles in which honda is replacing the inflators within the driver's side air bag to address a defective condition. this recall addresses both air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. a replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the driver's air bag.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's air bag, the inflator could produce excessive internal pressure that could cause the inflator to rupture with metal fragments striking and injuring the driver or other occupants.

Owners of all vehicles on which a defective air bag may have been installed either as original equipment or as a replacement will be notified. dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced, free of charge. the safety recall began on or about june 27, 2011. owners of vehicles involved in the december 2011 expansion will be notified in december 2011. owners may contact honda at 1-800-999-1009. this safety recall campaign is related to recalls 08v-593, 09v-259, and 10v-041.
