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.
