There's been a lot of talk about unintended acceleration over the past few months, but what about "unintended movement?" This new phrase, coined by the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
, applies to recent
products affected by a problem where drivers might be able to remove the key from the ignition before the vehicle is shifted into park, which could cause the vehicle to run away on its own. (We don't know why anyone would take the key out before putting the vehicle in park, but still, cars need to be idiot-proof these days.)
This latest recall affects more than 40,000 2010 model year
vehicles, including the
reports. Owners should be able to have this problem fixed at their local
, free of charge.
