Honda Recalls 634000 Odyssey Minivans for Second-Row Seat Problems

When the seat is titled forward to allow access to the back row, the latch may not secure the seat when it's returned to it's normal position.

Honda is carrying out a huge recall of Odyssey minivans sold in the United States due to a defect with the second row of outboard seats. Thankfully, no injuries or accidents related to the second-row seat issue have been reported. The lever could stay unlocked, causing the second-row seat to move unexpectedly, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) documents.

Colombian Congress unanimously approves FARC amnesty law
Rebels found guilty of committing serious crimes, such as massacres, sexual violence or kidnapping, will not fall under amnesty. The original peace deal, rejected at a referendum on 2 October, was seen by many as too lenient towards the rebels.

Honda dealers will add an additional bracket and a spring to both second-row outboard seats for free. The statement said that the faulty adjustment handle "increases the risk of injury to the seat occupant during a crash". These were manufactured from August 2010 to October 2015.

Honda will send a notification to affected Odyssey owners in February next year and a second notification once the necessary parts are available. You may be sure that Honda is footing the bill on this one.

So far, no crashes or injuries have been reported - in the United States or Canada - due to the defect, but the company has received hundreds of warranty claims.
