American Honda recalls 24,889 Odyssey vans in the U.S.

Through April, Honda sold 39,471 Odysseys in the U.S., a gain of 3.7 percent.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- American Honda said it would voluntarily recall 24,889 of its 2014 Odyssey vehicles in United States to replace a component that could prevent the deployment of the side-curtain airbag during a crash.

The shorting coupler in the side-curtain airbag may have been damaged during assembly, Honda Motor's U.S. sales operation said in a statement on Thursday.

There have been no reports of crashes or injuries related to the issue, which was discovered through warranty repairs.

Through April, Honda sold 39,471 Odysseys in the U.S., a gain of 3.7 percent over the same period last year.
