Unexpected Closing of Power Liftgate

Structure:Body:Hatchback/Liftgate:Support Device/Strut

Honda will replace the liftgate struts in approximately 21,776 model year 2005 Honda Odyssey Touring vehicles equipped with power liftgates that were built before a manufacturing change of the liftgate strut assembly on July 16, 2005 (NHTSA Recall No. 10V-055).Vehicles built after the change experience significantly lower failure rates.The recall will inform consumers of the dangers of the existing struts and provide the opportunity for vehicle owners to obtain new struts that are more robust.Based on Honda's action, the agency has decided to close the investigation.While Honda has not made a decision that the recalled vehicles contain a safety-related defect, in view of the recall, further use of the agency's resources does not appear to be warranted.The agency reserves the right to take further action if warranted by the circumstances.Additional information can be found in the attached Engineering Analysis Report.
