DETROIT (AP) -- Honda is recalling more than 870,000 minivans and SUVs worldwide because they can roll away even though drivers have removed the keys from the ignition.

The recall affects older-model vehicles sold mainly in the United States. They were big sellers with families because of their ample space and reputation for quality. Problems with the ignition switches have plagued Honda for years.

Models include: Honda Odyssey minivans and Pilot SUVs from 2003 and 2004. Also Acura MDX SUVs from the 2003 through 2006 period. All have automatic transmissions.
