Here is another recall for today. Honda announced that it is recalling a total of 33,341 units of the Honda Odyssey minivans over windshield wiper defects. Apparently the front windshield wiper blades become frozen to the windshield, causing the rod to separate from the motor
Honda received the first reports of the issue in Canada and the United States in November.
To fix the issue Honda will – you guessed it – replace the front windshield wiper. Recall starts in April.

The 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring ($40,755) and Touring Elite ($43,250) are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which allows for an EPA rated fuel-economy of 19/28 mpg or 22 mpg combined.
