Honda Recalling Nearly 900,000 Odyssey Minivans

April 28th, 2014

In the wake of the GM recall, smaller vehicle recalls may go underreported. This does not mean, however, that they are any less dangerous. For example, Honda has just announced a recall for nearly 900,000 Odyssey minivans manufactured between 2005 and 2010. According to the company, the recall involves a fuel pump that can prematurely deteriorate, resulting in fire.

Honda will begin issuing notices to known owners this month, but the company states the part necessary for repairing the issue will not be available until the summer.

Defective Vehicles

Every day seems to bring more news of defective vehicles posing serious or life-threatening risks to drivers and passengers. Many of these defects are well known to the manufacturers, yet intentionally ignored – often long after injury has already occurred. This type of behavior has recently resulted in Toyota being given the largest fine in the history of defective vehicle claims by the Department of Justice. That that amount may be dwarfed by what GM is given once the extent of their negligence is known.

Sadly, trusting auto manufacturers is no longer a given, but knowing where to turn when you are injured by a defective vehicle can be. The Baltimore personal injury lawyers at our firm are here to take your case and fight for you, helping you get the total compensation you deserve.
