Honda recalls 900,000 minivans to inspect, repair tip-prone seats

A 2016 Honda Odyssey minivan under recall.

WASHINGTON -- Honda Motor Co. said on Saturday that it was recalling about 900,000 minivans because second-row seats may tip forward if not properly latched after being adjusted.

The automaker said the recall covers 2011-17 Honda Odyssey minivans, all but 2,000 of which are in North America, and that it had 46 reports of minor injuries related to the issue.

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.
