The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a voluntary recall for the 2014 Honda Odyssey because of a problem with the side airbags.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of almost 25,000 units of the 2014 Honda Odyssey will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of some issues with their airbags. The NHTSA says that the passenger side curtain airbag can fail to deploy in case of a crash because of an electrical connector which has been used to prevent the airbag deployment before being installed onto the vehicle.
This is what the car manufacturer has told the safety regulators but it seems that the company is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue. A total of 24,889 units of the Honda Odyssey, from the 2014 model year, will be affected by this recall. Honda is currently in the process of notifying owners of the problem so the recall is expected to start this month. Owners of the 2014 Honda Odyssey, who have more questions on the subject, should contact Honda or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
