Honda is recalling certain 2014-2016 Honda Odyssey vehicles. The second row outboard seats have a lever to fold the seatback and slide the seat forward to access the third row seats. Due to a manufacturing error, if the walk-in release is used to fold a fully reclined left outboard seatback forward, the seatback may stay in the unlocked position (free-folding) or unexpectedly unlock without engaging the walk-in or recliner lever.

An unlocked second row left outboard seatback increases the risk of injury to the seat occupant during a crash.

Exposure to environmental conditions, such as water mixed with road salt, may cause the front fuel tank strap frame “T-Slot” bracket to corrode, possibly causing the fuel tank to drop and make contact with the ground.

If the fuel tank were to drop and contact the ground, a fuel leak may result. Additionally, in the event of a crash, the fuel tank may not remain secured to the vehicle, possibly causing a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.
