August 4, 1999

American Honda Motor Company

Model: Honda Odyssey

Year: 1999

Number Involved: 21,098

Dates of Manufacture: August 1998 - March 1999
Defect: On certain LX and EX model vehicles, the sliding doors may not latch properly. An improperly latched door could open unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion. Under certain circumstances, a door could open completely, allowing an unrestrained rear seat passenger to fall out of an open door of a moving vehicle and be seriously injured or killed.
Remedy: Dealers will replace the door latch assembly. Owner notification was expected to begin during July 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
