Honda recalls 2011-2016 Odyssey vehicles over defective release lever on second row outboard seats

 

Honda is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Odyssey vehicles manufactured August 17, 2010, to October 1, 2015. The affected vehicles have second row outboard seats that have a release lever that allows the seats to move for easier access to the third row of seats. This release lever may remain in the unlocked position allowing the seats to move unexpectedly.

An unlocked second row outboard seat increases the risk of injury to the seat occupant during a crash.

633,753 cars are affected by the recall.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional bracket and spring to both second row outboard seats, free of charge.  The recall is expected to begin January 23, 2017.
