TORRANCE, California — American Honda Motor Co. is recalling approximately 9,500 2015 Acura TLX V6 sedans in the U.S. because a transmission problem could result in a rollaway risk, the automaker said on Friday.
Acura dealers will inspect and, if needed, replace the automatic transmission.
"Manufacturing process issues could result in the nine-speed automatic transmission not properly shifting into Park after selecting the Park position," the company said in a statement. "If the parking brake is not applied by the driver and the transmission cannot be shifted into Park, the vehicle may roll away, increasing the risk of a crash."
No crashes or injuries are linked to the recall.
Until the car can be fixed, the company is telling drivers to engage the parking brake whenever parking their vehicle.
The recall will begin in early January. Owners can contact Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
Edmunds says: Owners are being encouraged to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they received notification of this recall from Acura. If you have a concern in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer now.
