When vehicles fail, it can lead to devastating accidents, millions in lawsuits against vehicle manufacturers, and a bad reputation. Unfortunately, Honda faced vehicle problems and had to make four separate recalls for specific models. Let’s review the Honda Pilot and Passport recall information with Ehline Law and our California product defect lawyers. Due to the factory issue, these vehicles may not have been properly constructed, leading to concern about a catastrophic failure during a collision.
Consumer Affairs reported on the issue; according to the Recall, the vehicles have severe structural integrity issues. The company said that the front frame left and right side upper members could not have been adequately welded to the car’s unibody. As a result, in case of a crash, there is a chance that this would not provide adequate protection case of a collision. This could lead to an increased event of severe injury or death.
In August 2020, Honda published critical information documents with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and recalled a total of 1.6 million vehicles, including Odyssey minivans, pilot vehicles, and passport SUVs, in the United States after discovering several issues.
Let’s look at the recall details and why Honda decided to notify owners about the issues in their cars.
This affects the 2019 and 2020 Pilot models and the 2019 Passport line. Honda announced that it would notify owners of these vehicles after December 1, 2019. If you were involved in an accident due to this error, your priority is to contact an expert.

About 324,194 Honda Odyssey minivans (2018 to 2020 models) faced a slight problem with the power sliding doors. The company recalled the cars after discovering that water can freeze between the power sliding door and the outside door handle, which could restrict the door latches.
The defect on the 2019 and 2020 models of the Honda Odyssey could allow the water to seep into the backup camera, affecting the rear camera image.
Specific models of the Honda Passport and Pilot SUVs faced faulty software programming resulting in issues with the backup camera during reverse. Honda decided to do a software update to address the problem.
The Japanese public multinational conglomerate manufacturer recalled about 607,784 cars, including Odysseys (2018 to 2019 models), Honda Passports (2019 and 2020 models), and Honda Pilots (2019 to 2021 models), after they discovered a defect in the gauge cluster displays.
The unit’s display failed to show vehicle indicators such as engine oil pressure, speedometer, and gear selection.
The Japanese car manufacturer recalled about 750,000 Passport, Pilot, and Ridgeline vehicles after discovering a defective hood opening, which could cause the hood to fly open. The gap in the hood could allow air into it, causing an upward pressure, weakening the component that held onto the hood latch striker over time and causing the entire hood to open.
