Loose Fit: Transport Canada recalls nearly 15,000 Honda, Hyundai models for loose glass

Toronto, Ontario — A pair of glass-related safety defects have crossed into the radar of Transport Canada, as the federal safety regulator announced recalls for recent model year Honda and Hyundai vehicles.

Drivers of recent Honda Pilot, Ridgeline, Passport and Odyssey models may soon receive a letter in the mail regarding faulty side mirrors on their vehicle.

Transport Canada said in its recall notice last Thursday that drivers of the affected vehicles may experience their side mirror glass vibrating and potentially falling off in motion due to an improper assembly.

Citing parts supply issues, the notice also states that only drivers who identified loose, vibrating or detached side mirror glass on their vehicle should visit a dealership for this recall.

“Honda will send you a second notice when the replacement parts are available, and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealership to replace the glass on both side mirrors,” read part of the recall notice.

This recall currently affects 12,916 of the following Honda models:

  • 2020 to 2022 Honda Odyssey
  • 2020 to 2022 Honda Passport
  • 2020 to 2021 Honda Pilot
  • 2020 to 2021 Honda Ridgeline

In Hyundai’s case, 1,893 Sonata and Santa Fe vehicles from the 2021 model year have been recalled for a similar issue to Honda, but instead concerning the entire windshield of certain vehicles.

The issue and safety risk identified by Transport Canada is identical on both recalls, citing improper windshield attachment, and calls on affected Hyundai drivers to visit a dealership to have a new windshield installed.
