The Japanese automaker has recalled roughly 1,500,000 Honda cars in the United States to update the software controlling the automatic transmission. The recall is to prevent any potential damage to the secondary shaft bearing of the affected vehicle's automatic transmission from quick, vigorous shifting employed when trying to get free from mud or snow. Potential side effects of damage include engine stalling or trouble putting the car into park.
Honda writes the following in their press release, "Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda."1 At the end of the month Honda will begin mailing official recall notifications.
