Airbag Safety Concern Results in Recall of Honda Odyssey
Honda is issuing a voluntary recall for an old minivan model due to an airbag issue.
The automaker is recalling certain model year 2003 Odyssey vehicles after the discovery that the affected vehicles were manufactured with airbag modules, preventing them from meeting the advanced airbag safety standards. Airbags that do not meet the safety requirements increase the risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.
These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Honda is including just 37 vehicles in this recall.
Honda will notify owners, dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 6, 2015.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138.
