Honda announced today that it is voluntarily recalling 2,800 units of the 2011 Honda Odyssey in the United States to replace the side window glass in one or both of the front doors.

“Honda is taking this step because there is a potential for one or both windows to become detached from the window regulator, causing the window to become inoperative and preventing it from being rolled up or down,” Honda said. “In the worst case, the window may bind and shatter onto the occupants. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this defect.”

Honda will start notifying customers in mid-April 2011. Owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going on-line to or by calling (800) 999-1009, and selecting option 4.
