Honda Odyssey Minivan Crash Failure Lawsuits

The Honda Odyssey minivan is a vehicle that has been plagued with defects in recent years. Recalls on these vehicles have varied from braking and air bag defects to fuel pump and seat latch problems. These defects put occupants at risk for increased injury during crashes, leading to Honda Odyssey minivan crash failure lawsuits for the victims.

When components in vehicles do not perform as designed, they can pose a risk to drivers and their passengers, especially during accidents. Brakes that do not work properly or seats that malfunction during a crash, which has occurred with the Honda Odyssey minivan, can cause serious injuries. Regardless of the cause of the accident, if vehicle occupants are injured due to a lack in crashworthiness from a feature or product defect, the manufacturer may be held financially responsible in some cases.

Faulty Seat Latches Pose Injury Risk

In November 2017, Honda issued a recall on 900,000 Odyssey minivans that have defective seat latches. The majority of these minivans were sold in the U.S., involving models from 2011-2017. This follows a recall on 650,000 Honda Odyssey minivans in 2016 for a similar issue. Honda believed they had fixed the problem, but complaints continued to surface.

The faulty seat latch in the product recall is on the second-row outboard seat. When moderate to heavy braking occurs, the seat can lurch forward and tip, putting passengers at risk for injury. Not only can passengers be injured during a regular traffic stop, there is increased risk for injury during a crash.
