The Odyssey recall affects 24,889 vehicles from the 2014 model year sold in the U.S. Honda indicated that it launched the Odyssey recall to repair defective couplers in Odyssey side curtain airbags. Damaged couplers could mean that the airbags would fail to deploy during an accident, Reuters notes.
Honda said that the problem was identified during warranty-covered repairs to Odyssey minivans. Defects in the airbag coupler may have been introduced during the vehicles’ assembly process.
The defective side curtain airbag coupler that prompted the voluntary Honda 2014 Odyssey recall has not been linked to any accidents or injuries.
Despite news of the Odyssey recall, HMC stock rose modestly in Friday morning trading.
