Honda Recalls Over 200,000 Minivans due to a Potential Fire Hazard.
Honda is recalling over 200,000 of their minivans due to a potential fire risk.
According to Honda, faulty wiring in the van’s harness that runs to a third-row power outlet may have been pinched and damaged during manufacturing.
This can cause a short circuit, which can ignite a plastic interior panel covering.
The recall includes the Honda Odyssey EX-L, Touring and Elite minivans from the 2018 through 2020 model years.
Owners will be notified of the recall by mail in March.
So far, Honda is aware of three fires occurring in the minivans. No injuries have been reported at this time.
