Honda Canada says it is going to take until next spring to find the parts required to repair thousands of Odyssey minivans that are being recalled because second-row chairs may not lock into place.
The Japanese car maker says the Canadian remember covers 52,710 Odyssey minivans in the 2011 to 2016 models.
Honda says there’s been no harm or crash report related to the issue, which was detected through warranty claims.
A similar U.S. recall announced on Thursday covering 633,753 Odyssey minivans is anticipated to start on Jan 23.
However, Honda Canada said it will not mail first recall admissions to Odyssey owners before mid-February, with another letter to be sent when components become available. It did not give a specific date for the coming of the components but said it will be in spring 2017.
Meanwhile, Honda Canada is advising Odyssey passengers and drivers to take precautions by manually locking the chair into a predetermined position.
The business says it will eventually install extra springs and mounts to the affected vehicles, without charge.
