1999-2000 Honda Odyssey Automobiles Recalled
Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway
Transportation Administration (NHTSA) has published the recall of certain 1999-2000
Honda Odyssey automobiles because on certain minivans, the sliding doors may not latch
properly because the latches were not correctly riveted during manufacture.
7,085 of these vehicles, manufactured
between December 1999 through January 2000 are affected by this recall.
Dealers will replace the door latch assembly on
all Odyssey minivans built from Dec. 10, 1999 through Jan. 7, 2000. Also included in
this recall are approximately 1,400 Odyssey minivans that had the latches replaced under
recall 99V-158 or
under warranty, that may need to have the latches replaced again.
Owners of these vehicles will be notified by Honda
to bring the vehicle to their Honda dealer for inspection of the previously replaced latch
assembly. Latches with the suspect date code will be replaced. The manufacturer has
reported that owner notification will begin June 22, 2000. Owners who do not receive the
free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
