Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Passenger Side Curtain Airbag Recall: 2014 Honda Odyssey

Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Passenger Side Curtain Airbag Recall:  
2014 Honda Odyssey 
MARKHAM, ON, May 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Honda will voluntarily recall 1,501 units of 
2014 model-year Odyssey vehicles in Canada to repair the electrical coupler, a 
component in the passenger side curtain airbag system, free of charge. During 
assembly of the electrical coupler for the passenger side curtain airbag, the 
shorting terminal, which is used to prevent deployment of the airbag before it 
is assembled into the vehicle, may have been damaged. A damaged shorting 
terminal may cause the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) indicator to 
illuminate as well as prohibit the side curtain airbag from deploying during a 
crash, increasing the risk of injury. No crashes or injuries have been 
reported related to this issue, which was discovered through warranty repairs. 
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles 
to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive 
notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will 
begin in May, 2014. In addition to contacting customers by mail, owners of 
these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by 
going to www.honda.ca/recalls or by calling 1-888-9HONDA9.
