Statement by American Honda Regarding Power Tailgate Strut Recall: 2008 and 2009 Honda Odyssey

TORRANCE, Calif. -- Feb. 22, 2012 -- Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 45,800 model-year 2008 and early-2009 Odyssey EX-L and Touring vehicles in the United States 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 have been reported related to this issue.

Honda 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 in mid-March 2012. In addition to contacting customers by mail, in mid-March, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going on-line to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (800) 999-1009, and selecting option 4.

Statement by American Honda Regarding Fuel Tank Recall: 2012 Honda Pilot and Acura MDX

TORRANCE, Calif. -- Feb. 23, 2012 -- Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 8,700 model-year 2012 Honda Pilot and Acura MDX vehicles in the United States to inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel tank. The vent shut float (VSF) valve case, a component of the emissions-related on-board fuel vapor recovery system mounted inside the fuel tank, could detach from its mounting inside of the tank due to an incorrect VSF case material. A detached VSF case may result in fuel overflowing from the fuel tank or possibly a fuel leak, which increases the risk of fire. No fires or injuries have been reported related to this issue, which was identified during internal production testing by the part supplier.

Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles to take the vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin in mid-March 2012. In addition to contacting customers by mail, in mid-March, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require inspection by going on-line to www.recalls.honda.com and www.recalls.acura.com or by calling (800) 999-1009 for Honda owners or (800) 382-2238 for Acura owners, and selecting option 4.
