(NNCNOW.COM) -- According to CNN Money, Honda is recalling 800,000 minivans and SUVs because the key can be removed when the vehicle isn't in park, resulting in the car possibly rolling away.

Ordinarily, it should be impossible to pull the key out of the ignition unless the automatic transmission's gear selector is in park, preventing the wheels from rolling, the website says.

In some Honda vehicles, the mechanism that locks the key into the ignition can wear out, particularly if drivers repeatedly attempt to remove the key when the vehicle is not in park.

Honday says that even if this mechanism wears out, the key will not be able to be removed is the vehicle's engine is running.
