Honda Recalls 255,000 Odyssey Minivans For Seatback Problems

Honda is recalling about 900,000 of its Odyssey minivans because the second-row seats may tip forward if not properly latched.

The recall announced Saturday covers vehicles from the 2011-17 model years. 

Honda says it has received 46 reports of minor injuries related to the issue.

It says the Odyssey’s second-row seat may tip forward during moderate to heavy braking if it isn’t properly latched after adjusting it side-to-side or reinstalling a removed seat.

The company is working on a way to repair the issue and says it will notify owners when one is available. It will be free. Until then, Honda has put instructions for properly latching the seat on its website for owners.

The recall is expected to begin April 30, 2018. Honda dealers will confirm the second-row left outboard seatbacks work correctly and install support brackets to the seat recliners. However, dealers will replace the seatback frame assemblies if the seatbacks cannot lock.

Owners of 2014-2016 Odyssey minivans may contact Honda at 888-234-2138 and use recall number X0R.
