RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission have a system that prevents the ignition key from being removed from the ignition lock unless the transmission is in the park position. A part in this system can wear and allow the key to be removed when the transmission is not in park. When the transmission is not in park, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly increasing the risk of a crash. To address this concern, dealers will install an updated shift interlock lever and if necessary, replace the ignition switch.

I guess I got a lemon, because this is a TERRIBLE car! Since about 75K miles it has just continued to develop problem after problem after problem. Constantly in the shop every 5K miles or so for some new issue. I had a ford explorer before this Acura with almost 200k miles on it - never should have traded it in, NOTHING was ever wrong with it. This car has required EXPENSIVE repairs on mechanical problems that shouldn't be happening. New radiator, new starter, new transmission cable, new steering rack, new power steering fluid pump, new ac compressor and several sets of rotors and pads, even though the majority of miles are highway. I will never buy another Acura.
