Honda Odyssey Recall


Honda has issued a recall for more than 900,000 Odyssey minivans following reports of second-row seats tipping forward. The defect has been linked to at least 46 injuries.

About the Honda Odyssey Seat Recall

The recall was announced in November and is meant to address problems with the adjustable seats failing to lock into place. 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.

Honda launched an awareness campaign following their initial recall announcement in order to educate owners on how to properly latch the seats. Honda also posted instructions on their website to assist consumers pending a full repair.

Currently, the recall is limited to the following model-years:

  • 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • 2017 Honda Odyssey

Authorities Investigate Death of Teen Crushed by Third-Row Honda Odyssey Seat

In addition to the second-row seat recall, authorities are investigating the death of an Ohio teen who was trapped under a third-row seat that had inadvertently collapsed and folded into his 2004 Odyssey’s rear well.

Reports indicate the 16-year-old boy was reaching over the third-row seat towards the rear well to retrieve tennis equipment when the seat retracted into the well, trapping the teen’s head and chest underneath. The rest of the boy’s body was pinned between the seat and the minivan’s rear-door.

The teen contacted authorities, but ultimately died from asphyxiation by chest compression.

Honda has said there have been no recalls concerning the third-row seats of 2004 Honda Odysseys.
