2012 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 042015


  • miles


The contact owns a 2012 Honda Odyssey. While the vehicle was in operation, the contact's 10 year old child was seated in a booster seat located on the rear driver side. The rear middle seat belt that was tethered from the ceiling had somehow wrapped around the child's neck, causing the child to strangle. The driver had to cut the seat belt to remove it from the child's neck. The contact indicated that the belt could not be immediately removed because it had to be unlocked and the lock was impeded between the seats. The VIN was not available. The manufacturer was notified of the incident. The failure mileage was unavailable...updated 08/06/15

The farthest rear driver side seat belt tore in half when pulled down to be used. When inspected it was noted that the plastic near the ceiling that the belt enters and retracts into was jagged and sharp. There has been no accidents in this vehicle and no known damage to that area of plastic. The area that is jagged is also located in a position that damage to the area would be hard to do from an external force and appears to be more likely from the normal use of the seat belt rubbing over the plastic. The plastic area around the jagged area doesn't show any signs of wear or damage either.
