Honda Odyssey Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

RepairPal Expert Overview:

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The affected vehicles are being recalled because a fuel leak can develop from the area of the fuel pump strainer cover. Parts to permanently repair this concern are not yet available. Honda will first send owners an interim letter, followed by a second letter when the remedy parts become available. Parts are expected to be available beginning in the summer of 2014. Vehicles currently leaking fuel from the pump cover will get a replacement using the part currently available. All recalled vehicles will receive a revised cover once the part becomes available.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The vehicles being recalled are equipped with a vehicle control system designed to help prevent the vehicle from skidding if a turning maneuver that is to aggressive for the road conditions is attempted. A combination of system components and software may apply the brakes unexpectedly. The vehicle may suddenly and unexpectedly brake hard, without illuminating the brake lights, increasing the risk of a crash from behind. Remedy parts will not be available until the spring of 2014. Owners of affected vehicles will receive and interim letter notifying them of the issue and instructs on how to prevent unintended braking. A second notification will be sent when the parts become available.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to electrical interference the airbag control module may fail causing inadvertent deployment of the front airbags, side curtain airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners. Unexpected airbag deployment can result in personal injury and/or a vehicle crash. Dealers will install a suppressor unit to limit the electrical interference to the airbag control module to correct this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The pistons are one of the main components in the lower section of the engine, there is one piston inside of each cylinder. It is possible that some pistons were not properly heat treated during their manufacturing process. This would reduce the hardness of the metal making it more susceptible to premature wear. A worn piston may fail unexpectedly causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the lower part of the engine assembly, the "short block", to correct this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed. As a result, the inflator module could rupture causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator module found.
