The recall covers Odyssey vans from 2018 and 2019.

The company says it has no reports of injuries.

Dealers will replace the latches, but currently, they have only a limited parts supply.

If dealers can't get repair kits, owners will have the option of temporarily disabling the power sliding door until parts are available.

Manual door operation would still be possible.

Honda says owners should take their vans to a dealer as soon as they get recall letters that will be mailed in late December.
