Honda is recalling 318,000 Odyssey minivans in the U.S. and 64,400 Acura MDX sport-utility vehicles in several nations for an airbag defect. The automaker stated that there have been no reported crashes related to the defect. Honda is also recalling 23,3000 Odyssey minivans in Canada. Honda has received complaints that the airbag opened unnecessarily in the 2003 and 2004 model year Odyssey and the 2033 Acura MDX because the computer chip for airbag deployment was responding to electrical interference. Honda stated that a part called an electrical noise filter needs to be installed to prevent the problem. The Acura MDX recall covers 56,000 vehicles in the U.S., 1,000 in Japan, 4,800 in Canada and nearly 1,600 in Australia.
