Honda and General Motors Recall Vehicles
Honda is recalling almost 900,000 of its Odyssey minivans of model years 2005 through 2010. The vehicles have a defect that causes the cover of the fuel pump strainer to deteriorate. If fuel leaks out of the cracks, this could increase the risk of a fire. Honda is stating that no fires or injuries have been reported.
The automaker will begin notifying customers in five weeks. Replacement parts won't be available until the summer, but temporary repairs can be performed in the meantime.
GM is recalling over 1.5 million of its sport utility vehicles, sedans, and vans. About 1.18 million of GM's SUVs, including 2008-2009 and 2010-2013 Buick Enclaves and 2010-2013 Chevrolet Traverses, have defective side airbags that may not deploy.
Cadillac sedans and commercial vans, about 364,000 vehicles in total, are part of separate GM recalls. Cadillac XTS sedans are being recalled due to an increased risk of an engine fire while some 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans have a material on the instrument panel that does not meet federal safety standards.
No accidents or injuries have been reported in relation to the SUV, sedan, or van recalls.
