Honda has issued a recall of 46,000 of its Odyssey Minivans. Honda's recall was spurred by the Odyssey's faulty power tailgate, which, when open, can potentially drop unexpectedly and injure people standing underneath. The recall affects model year 2008 and 2009 Odyssey minivans that have power rear liftgates.
At fault for Honda's recall, according to CNN, a manufacturing error by the part supplier allows the gas-filled struts that hold the tailgates to potentially leak, thus impacting the struts' ability to hold up the tailgate.
Owners should be contacted via U.S. mail starting in mid-March.
The Honda Odyssey, which debuted in 1995, has proven to be a popular pick among minivans.
