ClavellBCMI: notmtwain: unlikely: notmtwain: Toyota and Honda are again in an unwanted race to lead the recall list again for 2012.

And will continue to lead the recall lists until people stop considering them to be better cars than a Ford.

My Honda had a "recall" that involved me going in and having a spring replaced because if I didn't it'd have been harder to find reverse while standing still. That's every bit as scary as that whole "three different recalls fixing three different things that make your 2013 Ford Escape burst into flames" recalls.

How bad is the new Honda recall?

In 2012, Honda recalled one of their models for a safety risk about once every month:

In February, Honda recalled more than 8,000 Honda Pilots and Acura MDXs for "fuel leaks"
In March, Honda recalled nearly 46,000 Odyssey minivans for "problems with falling rear doors"
In April, Honda recalled over 554,000 various models over faulty headlights
In May, Honda recalled 53,000 Acura sedans for "a problem with power steering hoses"
In June, Honda recalled 50,000 Honda Civics for "a potential issue with the left driveshaft"
In July, Honda recalled over 172,000 various models for problems with their front-door latches
In September, Honda recalled 572,000 Accords due to an issue with the power steering hoses
In October, Honda recalled 268,000 vehicles due to the possibility a window switch could catch fire
In December, Honda 870,000 vehicles "because they can roll away even though drivers have removed the keys from the ignition."

// Yes, you're right. None of these sounds like a serious problem.

Gotta love that fine quality control program Honda has for their parts suppliers, don'tcha?

Quality really took a dive when they started assembling cars in the states. They are starting to resemble the "big 3" ( I laughed as I typed that) more than the "big 3". U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
