Honda is issuing another recall on its Honda Odyssey minivans to address problems that could cause injuries to passengers, according to news reports .
Honda said nearly 2,800 of their 2011 model year Odyssey minivans are being recalled. The recall stems from a problem with the vehicle’s front windows. The vehicle manufacture said the van’s front driver and passenger side windows could come off their tracks, causing the windows to shatter and become inoperative, according to news reports.
The defective windows could come off their tracks, causing the glass could fall into the door and shatter. The glass could pose a safety risk to passengers.
This is the second recall for the minivans. Earlier this month, Honda recalled nearly 33,341 of the minivans over “a concern of damage to the windshield wiper arm control assembly caused by trying to operate the wipers when they are frozen to the windshield.”
As a Columbia personal injury lawyer , I’m glad Honda caught this issue before any injuries were reported. Honda said it will begin notifying owners by April 15 to have them visit a dealer and have new windows installed for free.
