Honda is recalling 33,341 of its 2011 model year Odyssey minivans over a problem related to the windshield wipers. Owners in primarily warm-weather climates may never experience this, as the issue pertains to damage resulting from the wipers being frozen to the van's windshield.

According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
If the front windshield wiper blades become frozen to the windshield and the wiper motor is switched on, one of the front windshield wiper linkage rods may bend or separate from the motor due to insufficient stiffness of the rod.
As a result of the linkage roads bending or separating, the wipers may fail to operate, decreasing a driver's visibility in poor weather conditions.

The Odyssey recall is expected to begin in mid-April, where owners can have the wiper rods replaced at a dealership, free of charge. Follow the jump for NHTSA's official statement.
