Honda Odyssey recall: Automaker will fix minivan liftgate

Honda said it will recall nearly 46,000 2008 and 2009 Odyssey minvans to fix a problem with the tailgate.

The automaker plans to replace the two power tailgate struts on the van.

The gas-filled struts that help to raise and support the tailgate of vehicles equipped with a power tailgate system may be prone to early life failures, Honda said.

There have been reports of the struts failing and the tailgate closing unexpectedly

Two injuries have been linked to the problem.
