Honda Odyssey Recalls - Front windshield wiper blades become frozen to the windshield

What is the reason for this notice?
Certain 2011 model year Odyssey vehicles exhibit the defect that the front windshield wiper blades become frozen to the windshield and the wiper motor is switched on, one of the front windshield wiper rods may bend or separate from the motor due to insufficient stiffness of the rod. If this occurs, the windshield wipers can become inoperative, decreasing the driver’s visibility in adverse weather conditions and increasing the risk of a crash.

What should you do?
Call any authorized Honda dealer and make an appointment to have your vehicle repaired. The dealer will replace the front windshield wiper rod. This work will be done free of charge. Please plan to leave your vehicle for half a day to allow the dealer flexibility in scheduling.
