Acura Recalls RDX for Gear Changing Danger
Report Receipt Date: APR 15, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V143000 
Component(s): POWER TRAIN 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 204,169 

SUMMARY:
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 CR-V, Odyssey, and model year 2013 Acura RDX vehicles. During sub-freezing temperatures, the brake-shift interlock blocking mechanism may become slow and allow the gear selector to be moved from the Park position without pressing the brake pedal. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."
CONSEQUENCE:
If the gear selector is moved from the park position without pressing the brake pedal it can allow the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.
