New For 2013

The i-MID information display with CD, Bluetooth, and USB audio connectivity is now standard on all models (including the LX), as is a rearview camera.

Overview

We’d like to tell you that there’s one clear standout in the minivan market, but we’d be lying. The minivans from Honda, Toyota, and Chrysler have been jockeying for the top spot for years, and all are formidable competitors. Even in that esteemed company, however, the Honda Odyssey stands out as an eight-time Automobile Magazine All-Stars award winner. The Odyssey’s capable 3.5-liter V-6 uses Honda’s cylinder-deactivation system that cuts the power to some of the cylinders under light engine loads, enabling the Odyssey to claim best-in-class highway fuel economy. Like any good minivan, the Odyssey’s most impressive features pertain to interior versatility. The minivan can be configured to hold either seven or eight passengers, and its second-row bench can hold three child seats—just the thing if you’re bringing your new set of triplets home from the hospital. If your kids don’t want to watch the same movie, an extra-wide rear-seat video monitor that can screen two movies at once is an option in the top Touring Elite model. A removable center console has room for a purse inside, and a cooler below the center stack can hold four bottles of water. For carrying cargo, the third row now folds into the floor with the tug of a single strap. The Odyssey will appeal to everyone in the family.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; and stability and traction control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard.

AIR BAGS
Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2009-2013 Pilot and 2011-2013 Odyssey passenger vehicles manufactured from March 13, 2008, through December 21, 2012. One or more rivets that attach the airbag module to the airbag cover may be missing.
Consequences
The absence of more than one rivet could alter the performance of the driver's airbag during deployment. This could potentially increase the risk of injury during a crash.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners and instruct them to take their vehicle to a Honda dealer. The dealer will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary, free of charge. The recall began on March 14, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 CR-V, Odyssey, and model year 2013 Acura RDX vehicles. During sub-freezing temperatures, the brake-shift interlock blocking mechanism may become slow and allow the gear selector to be moved from the Park position without pressing the brake pedal. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."
Consequences
If the gear selector is moved from the park position without pressing the brake pedal it can allow the vehicle to roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners and instruct them to take their vehicle to a Honda or Acura dealer. The dealer will install an updated brake shift interlock blocking mechanism free of charge. The recall began on May 13, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's campaign recall numbers are S96, S97, and S98.

Component
ENGINE
Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2013 Pilot 2WD and 4WD vehicles and certain model year 2013 Odyssey vehicles. During manufacturing of the engine piston, it is possible that the heat treatment process was not properly applied, resulting in the piston having an insufficient hardness level, making it more susceptible to premature wear.
Consequences
A worn piston may suddenly fail, causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine short block free of charge. The recall began on September 16, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's recall numbers are JB4 (Honda Odyssey) and JB5 (Honda Pilot).
