2018-2020 Honda Odyssey Minivans Recalled
Some 241,339 2018-2020 Honda Odyssey minivans are being recalled due to a safety risk involving the third-row seat.
The auto maker reports there is a fire risk in the affected minivans sold in the United States, according to documents filed by Honda with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The report stated that the problem may take place if the wire harness for the power outlet in the third row becomes pinched. Should this happen, it may damage the wires and lead to an electrical short and possibly a fire.
At this time there have been three fires reported due to the situation. Honda stated that there were no injuries reported.
The defect may be fixed using protective tape, however, only if the wire is undamaged. The dealer will replace the wire if it is found to be damaged.
Most of the minivans being recalled were built in 2018 and 2019, or roughly 100,000 for each model year.
Notifications will be sent out to owners of these vehicles beginning on March 16. Additionally, Odyssey owners can check with Honda on their website or the NHTSA recall website.
