MARKHAM, ON, Feb. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Honda Canada will voluntarily recall
approximately 2,790 model-year 2008 and early-2009 Odyssey EX-L and
Touring vehicles in Canada to replace the two power tailgate struts.
The gas-filled struts that help to raise and support the tailgate of
vehicles equipped with a power tailgate system may be prone to early
life failures. A strut failure may result in the tailgate closing under
its own power, possibly unexpectedly, with the potential risk of injury
and inconvenience to users. Two injuries in North America have been
reported related to this issue.
Honda Canada is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all
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 next month. In the interim,
owners can determine if their vehicles will require repair by going
on-line to www.honda.ca/recalls or by calling 1-888-946-6329.
