Summary:
A transmission case bolt can loosen and fall out allowing the transmission to disengage from the differential. The vehicle could lose power to the drive wheels without warning.

Remedy:
Dealers will install a redesigned bolt. Owner notification began Aug. 30, 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
