24Honda issues bizarre non-recall on Odyssey over badge placement

Without looking under the hood or at a vehicle history report, one of the easiest way to tell if a car has had body work done is to check the location and placement of the exterior badges.

For this reason, Honda is suggesting that some owners of the 2013 Odyssey take their vans into the dealership for a little rebadging.
