The New York Times reports that NHTSA “said in a report posted on its website” that Honda has put out a recall on approximately 900,000 Odyssey minivans due to a fire risk. The automaker informed the agency of a problem in 2005-2010 Odysseys where the fuel pump can “deteriorate prematurely in a manner that can result in cracks,” permitting gasoline to leak from the vehicle. Although Honda is unaware of any injuries related to the issue, the report points out that the company said it would not have the right repair parts until this summer, and in April notifications will start being sent out. The report also observes that all 886,815 vehicles were “built in a Honda plant in Alabama.”
