Honda Recalls 2011 Odyssey
text size: A- A+
More specifically, Honda will voluntarily recall 33,341 model-year 2011 Odyssey vehicles in the U.S. to replace the front windshield wiper linkage rod. So far, Honda says there have been no related incidents reported, nor does it have any information about people experiencing problems with their vehicles.
According to the company, the wiper linkage rod may be bent at some point during cold-weather conditions, and this would result in a poor visibility for the driver.
“If the windshield wipers are frozen to the windshield with heavy ice and the wipers are switched on without freeing them from the windshield, the wiper linkage rod may be bent. A bent wiper linkage rod may prevent normal operation of the front wipers, inhibiting the driver's forward view in inclement weather. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this defect,” a company statement reads.
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by the manufacturer starting mid-April 2011, and told to take their cars to the dealers for a proper inspection and repairs, if needed. All repairs will be conducted free of charge.
“When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more important to the company than fulfilling our obligation and responsibility to alert our customers. To this end, in addition to contacting customers by mail, in mid-April, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going on-line to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009, and selecting option 4,” Honda adds.
