The new Acura flagship, the RDX sedan, is one of the vehicles covered by the latest recall.

Already hammered by a series of recalls that have so far involved well over a million vehicles since the beginning of the year, Honda has added another 200,000 sedans, crossovers and minivans to the list, the newest recall involving problems with the maker’s shift-interlock system.
