Honda Recalls 900,000 Odyssey Minivans for Seat Defect, Injuries Reported


Honda Motor Co. is recalling 900,000 Odyssey minivans after receiving 46 reports of injuries caused by an issue that causes second-row seats to tip forward.

About the Honda Odyssey Minivan Recall

According to the New York Times, the recall was announced Saturday and is meant to address problems with the adjustable seats locking into place. In a statement by Honda, the automaker said it will try to educate owners on how to properly latch the seats until it can develop a full repair.

Honda warns that if a second-row seat is not properly latched after adjusting it side-to-side or reinstalling a removed seat, the set can tip forward during moderate to heavy braking resulting in an increased risk of injury to the occupant.

So far, Honda has posted an instructional sheet to assist affected owners and plans to add an instruction video.

Vehicle Affected by the Honda Odyssey Recall

Honda states that the recall affects 2011 to 2017 model year Odyssey minivans.

Of the 900,000 vehicles recalled, 800,000 were sold in the United States.

Affected owners can expect to receive recall notifications beginning in late December.
