2006 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

Odyssey 6-cyl

One of the seat belts for the middle seat does not have a standard release button. Instead, you have to try to use the metal clip piece or a key or other rigid thing item to release the belt. I always thought of this as an annoying design, but did not realize how dangerous this was until my daughter got it wrapped around her neck. The seat belt was locked in the ceiling and retracting tighter as she struggled. She is fine and I got her out without any real damage, but this is an incredibly dangerous design and should not be allowed as some other child may not be as lucky. The car was not moving at the time, it was parked. It happened in my moms 2016 Odyssey, but it has the same design in my vehicle listed.

Seat belt on drivers side gets wet every time it rains. Water is getting into where the seat belt recoils when not on the driver.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated the passenger side seat belt was able to be unlatched by a passenger and the seat belt then retracted and started choking the passenger. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that the seat belt was acting as designed. The contact believed that the seat belts posed a safety hazard because they automatically retracted and would not stop. The failure and current mileages were 123,000.

Seat belt defect: When our 2006 Honda Odyssey was rear-ended, the rear seat child occupant was ejected out of his seat and sustained injuries. The occupants seatbelt released on it's own upon impact. It is inconclusive whether the seatbelt malfunction contributed to the child's whip lash injuries.
