(AP Photo/David Zalubowski) (Newser) – Honda is recalling about 1.5 million vehicles in the US to update the software on the automatic transmission and reduce the possibility of transmission damage. The recall affects certain 2005-2010 4-cylinder Accord, 2007-2010 CR-V, and 2005-2008 Element vehicles. The transmission's secondary shaft bearing can be damaged when the car is shifted too quickly—say when a driver tries to get out of mud or snow. Honda will begin sending recall notices at the end of the month. It also affects about 800,000 vehicles sold outside the US.
