Honda has announced that it will be recalling 33,341 Honda Odyssey minivans, all from the 2011 model year, to fix a potential issue with the windshield wipers.
In cold-weather use, if the wiper system is turned on while the wipers themselves are still frozen to the windshield, the system’s linkage rod might bend, preventing normal wiper operation and potentially affecting the driver’s forward view.
The Odyssey has been completely redesigned for 2011, and as we've reported, it can rightly be called the safest minivan
as it's the first to have earned both top five-star safety scores from the federal government across the board as well as the IIHS Top Safety Pick designation.
Owners are encouraged to take their vehicle to the dealership as soon as they receive notification by mail, which will begin in mid-April. If you otherwise want to see if your vehicle is affected, visit www.recalls.honda.com
