Honda recalls 900,000 Odyssey minivans after dozens of reported injuries

TOKYO — Honda is recalling 900,000 Odyssey minivans after receiving 46 reports of injuries related to a problem that causes second-row seats to fall forward.

The company announced the recall, which includes models from 2011 to 2017, on Saturday.

There are 800,000 of the affected minivans that were sold in the U.S.

Honda is offering instructions on its website on how to correctly latch the seats to correct the safety issue.

“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 breaking, increasing the injury to an occupant,” the company said in a statement.

“This issue will not occur if a seat is properly latched.”

Honda recommends Odyssey owners take their vans to a dealership immediately, where they will be fixed for free.
