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.
