Toronto, Ontario – Honda will recall certain 2011 Odyssey minivans in Canada to replace the front windshield wiper linkage rod. The recall affects 2,908 vehicles.
After extended parking in freezing temperatures combined with snow or ice, the wipers may become frozen to the windshield. If they are activated while frozen, it can damage the wiper linkage rod, which may prevent normal wiper operation.
Honda said that no crashes or injuries have been reported related to the defect.
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail starting in mid-April, and are encouraged to take their vehicles to authorized dealers as soon as they receive notification. To determine if your vehicle is affected, contact a Honda dealer or call 1-888-946-6329.
