Honda Announces Odyssey Minivan Recall, Cites Fuel Leak

By Williams & Brown LLP on March 20, 2014

Honda recently announced a recall of more than 880,000 Odyssey minivans in the United States. The recall covers Odyssey minivans model years 2005 through 2010; these vans were manufactured between June 2004 and September 2010. Every year, experienced Texas car accident attorneys hear from those who are injured by vehicle defects.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the cover on the fuel pump strainer may break down with exposure to high temperatures and acidic chemicals. If the cover deteriorates, a fuel leak may start, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire. So far, however, Honda has stated that no reports of fires or injuries have been made.

Although Honda has stated plans to notify owners of the affected minivans by mail, replacement parts for the recalled Odyssey minivans are not yet available. The company plans to have parts to replace the fuel caps by this summer, at which time it will notify owners that they can get their fuel pump strainer covers replaced.

In the meantime, if Odyssey owners experience a fuel leak, Honda will replace deteriorated covers with original covers. Minivan owners should stay alert for fuel leaks and take their vehicles in as soon as possible if they suspect a leak. Owners who want more information about the recall can contact Honda at (800) 999-1009, or contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236 (TTY (800) 424-9153). Information is also available online at www.safercar.gov.
