2012 Honda Odyssey Recalls
The shift interlock system is designed to prevent the shifter from being moved out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because during sub-freezing temperatures, the interlock mechanism may be slow to operate. The could allow the shifter to be moved from the park position when it should not be allowed to do so. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install an updated shift interlocking mechanism to correct this concern.
During manufacturing, some of the metal rivets used to secure components of the driver's airbag may not have been installed. A missing rivet could alter the performance of the airbag during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary.
A retaining nut for the right front lower suspension damper bolt may not have been tightened correctly during vehicle assembly. As a result, the nut may loosen over time. If the nut were to loosen, the front hub assembly would then be attached by only one bolt. This would allow the wheel assembly to shift to an extreme inward angle, resulting in loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will repair the vehicles as necessary to correct this concern.
