According to Forbes, Honda has issued a recall of approximately 634,000 Odyssey minivans. The recall comes six years after the first problem was reported. The recall is designed to fix a problem with the second row of seats in the car.
The second row is designed to slide forward to allow passenger access to the third row of seats. Honda has found that the second row may not always lock in place when returned to its original position.
This glitch could increase the risk of injuries.
The recall affects 2011-2016 model year Honda Odyssey minivans.
Honda asserts that while 689 warranty claims for repairs have been made, it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the row of seats.
In contrast, some owners of the minivans have complained to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that injuries incurred were due to the glitch.
Two owners complained that the rear seats flipped forward and even detached, throwing children against the front seats, causing cuts and bruises.
