    Honda is recalling 122,000 minivans worldwide because the sliding doors can open while the vans are moving.

    The recall covers Odyssey vans from 2018 and 2019.

    Honda says some parts in the power door rear latches can stick and stop the doors from fastening securely. The company says it has no reports of injuries.

    Dealers will replace the latches, but currently they have only a limited parts supply. Honda expects to have more parts by late December. 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.
