Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Ignition Switch Interlock Recall: 
2003-2004 Honda Odyssey and Pilot; 2003-2006 Acura MDX 
MARKHAM, ON, Dec. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Honda Canada will recall approximately 
23,300 Honda Odyssey and 12,400 Honda Pilot vehicles from the 2003-2004 model 
years and approximately 16,600 Acura MDX vehicles from the 2003-2006 model 
years in Canada to address a potential malfunction of the ignition interlock 
feature of these vehicles. Honda Canada has received several complaints about 
such failures in these vehicles, but has received no reports of accidents or 
injuries related to this issue. 
The ignition interlock mechanism can be damaged or worn under specific types 
of usage. If this happens, it may become possible to remove the ignition key 
when the shift lever is not in Park. If the transmission is not in Park and 
the parking brake is not set, the vehicle could roll away, increasing the risk 
of an accident. 
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles 
to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive 
notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will 
be sent in late January 2013. In addition to contacting customers by mail, at 
that time, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their 
vehicles require inspection by going on-line to www.honda.ca/recalls and 
www.acura.ca/recalls or by calling (888) 9HONDA9 for Honda owners or (888) 
9ACURA9 for Acura owners.
