Nearly 1M Honda minivans recalled

cars-blog-2009-honda-odysseyThe Honda Odyssey has been hit with yet another car recall -- the second large recall for the popular minivan in less than six months. The current car recall affects 886,815 Honda Odyssey minivans from the 2005-2010 model years.

The cars are being recalled because of the risk they could catch on fire. Honda said that a part of the fuel pump could crack over time, resulting in possibly leaking fuel that could cause a fire in the car. The parts needed to repair the affected Honda Odyssey cars are not currently available, but any cars that are currently leaking fuel will receive a new fuel pump cover as an interim solution. When parts are available (which is expected to be this summer), all affected cars, including those that have had the interim repair, will get an improved cover.

The recalled cars were manufactured between June 23, 2004, and Sept. 4, 2010. Certain model year 2007-2008 Honda Odysseys were recalled last November for a problem that could cause the cars to unexpectedly brake due to a software malfunction.

Do you have one of these vans?

I will not buy a honduh.... not even a lawnmower. I'm not sure if I dislike honduhs more than toyletotas or the other way around. I don't care how "good" people say these things are - I won't have one!

Honduh Odditteys bursting into flames - how neat is that? Bring your own marshmallows or wieners.

The only good honduh is a crushed honduh.

Be AMERICAN - BUY AMERICAN! Just because a foreign company builds cars here doesn't make them American! Why support some other country's economy when our people need jobs?

I traded my 2010 odyssey for a 2013 toyota because of the brake on r rear howling and electric slideing door hinges failing. With 40k i wasn't going to wait to see what other problems were coming. Ps battery was garbage also.

Eventually,the recall of the same problem popped up this year and the dealer finally fixed it, but I am still not sure this problem is over

I experienced this problem with my Odyssey and took it to the dealer and they could not locate the problem. My car was braking on its own and I went back and forth to the dealer and eventually the Supervisor told me that I was not a mechanic.
