Vehicles Affected: Approximately 800,000 model-year 2011-17 Honda Odyssey minivans
The Problem: If a second-row seat is not properly latched after adjusting it side to side or reinstalling a removed seat, the seat may tip forward during moderate to heavy braking, increasing the risk of injury to an occupant.
Honda said it has received 46 reports of minor injuries related to this issue.
The Fix: Honda is currently investigating the appropriate repairs, which will be done for free. In the interim, it has created a detailed instruction sheet and will soon post a video on owners.honda.com detailing proper operation of the second-row seats and highlighting the injury risk if a seat is not latched.
What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners in late December. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
