Honda Motor Co. is widening a recall of vehicles in the U.S. and Canada to 1.14 million units,
among its largest, covering Accord and Acura cars that have the same transmission fault that
triggered a light-truck recall this year.
The problem results from insufficient lubrication of a transmission shaft that can overheat,
potentially damaging gear teeth or causing the gears to break, Honda said in a statement. In rare
instances, this condition may lead to gear breakage and possible locking of the vehicle's
transmission, creating a potential safety hazard.
