Honda may have added a built-in vacuum cleaner to some of its 2014 Odyssey minivans, but what really sucks is that a side curtain airbag might not work. Nearly 25,000 Honda Odyssey minivans have been recalled because a shorting terminal, which is used to prevent deployment of the airbag before it is assembled into the vehicle, may have been damaged during installation. That could cause the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) warning light to come on or, worse -- prevent the passenger side-curtain airbag from deploying in a crash.
