Recall Alert: 2014 Honda Odyssey

2014HondayOdyssey

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 24,889 model-year 2014 Honda Odyssey minivans.

The Problem: A shorting coupler, an electrical component in the side curtain airbag system, must be replaced. During assembly of the electrical coupler for the side curtain airbag on the passenger's side of the vehicle, it is possible that the shorting terminal, which is used to prevent deployment of the airbag before it is assembled into the vehicle, may have been damaged. This may cause the supplemental restraint system indicator to illuminate and prevent the side curtain airbag from deploying in a crash, increasing the risk of an injury. Honda said no crashes or injuries have been reported, and the problem was discovered through warranty repairs.

The Fix: The automaker will begin notifying owners by mail on May 16, and dealers will replace the shorting coupler for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or visit www.recalls.honda.com for more info.
