Vehicle Recall

Honda is recalling more than a-half million vehicles to replace a faulty part used in starting an engine.

Among the models affected are Odyssey minivans, CRV SUVs and Step Wagon minivans. The Japanese automaker says the three models were produced between 1994 and 1997, and that more than 78,000 were exported to nations including the U.S. and Canada.

Honda says repeated use of the parts that are weak against heat could cause the vehicle's engine to stop suddenly.

Five cases of minor burns were reported after the solder used in the defective parts melted and flowed onto drivers' feet.
