Honda to Recall Over 53,000 Vehicles in Canada

Honda Canada is recalling 53,770 vehicles across the country due to faulty software that can stop the display of the speedometer, engine oil lights, gear positions and rear cameras.

The list of affected models includes the 2018 to 2020 Honda Odyssey, 2019 to 2020 Honda Passport and 2019 to 2021 Honda Pilot.

According to the automaker, these models may need up to four free repairs, including two software updates, replacement of the rear-view camera and replacement of sliding door outer handle cables.

In Odyssey minivans, particularly, water can enter the door handle cables and freeze, preventing the doors from latching, and water can also distort the rear-view camera. This will require fixing.

Honda spokeswoman Laura Heasman said there have been no reports of crashes or injuries associated with the voluntary recall.

In the U.S., approximately 1.6 million units are affected by this same recall.
