recall

Marc h 17, 2014: Honda will voluntarily recall 886,815 Odyssey minivans from the 2005-2010 model-years in the United States to replace the fuel strainer, free of charge. Prolonged exposure to acidic chemicals, which are present in some car wash formulas and the general environment, along with high ambient temperatures, may cause the cover of the fuel strainer to deteriorate prematurely, resulting in cracks in the material. Cracks in the cover of the fuel strainer, which is located on the top of the fuel tank, could lead to a fuel smell being present or, in extreme cases, to leaking fuel, increasing the risk of fire. Honda is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fires related to this issue, which was discovered during warranty repairs.

Since these vehicles are no longer in production, updated fuel strainers will not be available in sufficient quantity until the summer of 2014. As a result, owners of included vehicles will be informed of the recall in an initial notification letter to be sent in late-April to early-May, and at that time, owners of vehicles from the affected model years will also be able to determine if their specific vehicles will later require repair by visiting Honda Recall or by calling (800) 999-1009 and selecting option 4. A second notification letter will be sent to owners in the summer of 2014 when updated parts become available for their specific vehicles, inviting them to schedule an appointment for repair at their local Honda dealer.
