Honda has issued a recall for 107,000 Odyssey minivans due to concerns that the vehicles’ sliding doors may open while the vehicle is being driven.
About the Honda Odyssey Minivan Recall
FOX 8 News reports that sliding doors on 2018 and 2019 model year Odyssey minivans may not properly latch, meaning they can open while the vehicle is in motion.
Honda says they have not received any reports of injuries in connection with the defect. The company will replace the left and right power sliding door rear latches at no costs to consumers.
Currently, there are only a limited supply of latch repair kits, but the company expects more to be shipped in December.
Previous Odyssey Minivan Recall Linked to 46 Injuries
Honda issued a previous recall for more than 900,000 Odyssey minivans due to a defect that could result in second-row seats tipping forward.
According to the automaker, if a second-row seat is not properly latched after adjusting it side-to-side or reinstalling a removed seat, the seat can tip forward during moderate to heavy braking, resulting in an increased risk of injury to the occupant.
That recall affected 2011-2017 model year Honda Odysseys.
