NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Honda is recalling more than 45-thousand of its 2008 and 2009 Odyssey Minivans with the power rear liftgate option.
The company reports there is an issue with the struts that open and close the rear hatch.
The struts can fail to support the lifted door unexpectedly closing it, increasing the risk of injury to anyone under it.
Honda will notify minivan owners next month and will replace the problem for free.
