Around 900,000 Honda Odyssey minivans have been recalled due to faulty second-row seats.

According to Honda, the second-row seats in certain 2011 to 2017 model year Odysseys may not be properly fastened and could tip forward. The problem has been linked to 46 reports of minor injuries, the Japanese automaker said. Around 800,000 of the vans are in the United States, with an undisclosed amount in Canada and Mexico. Around 2,000 of the vans are located outside of North America.

Honda is currently working on a fix and a recall to remedy the problem. The fix will in some fashion ensure the seats are always properly re-latched after they are adjusted. In the meantime, the automaker has posted a detailed instruction manual online showing consumers how to properly latch and fasten the seats.

Honda said it was working on a recall fix to help ensure proper latching and, in the interim, had posted a detailed instruction sheet on how to ensure seats are properly latched. You can access those instructions at this link.
