WASHINGTON, Jul 31, 2006 (AP Online via COMTEX News Network) --

A toll-free number listed in more than a million Honda owners'
manuals was supposed to direct callers to a government hotline - not
to another number where the conversation is probably about anything
but auto safety.

Honda Motor Co. said it incorrectly published an 800 prefix, rather
than an 888, on a toll-free vehicle safety telephone number in 1.2
million manuals for 2006 model year Honda and Acura vehicles and Honda

Owners who dial the 800 prefix hear a recorded message in which a
woman's voice, speaking over a funky beat, urges them to call
1-800-918-TALK for "just 99 cents per minute."
