Honda Minivans Recalled
February 22, 2012
Honda is recalling nearly 46,000 Odyssey minivans due to problems with falling rear doors. Due to a manufacturing error, the gas-filled struts that raise and hold up the power tailgate can leak, which may cause the tailgate to fall and potentially injure anyone standing underneath, CNN Money reports. There have been several complaints and two reported injuries as result of the faulty tailgates.
The recall includes 2008 and early 2009 Honda Odyssey EX-L and Touring vans. Owners are asked to take their vehicles to a Honda dealer for inspection and repair.
