The Japanese automaker Honda has just announced a recall involving about 310.000 units of its 2009 to 2011 Pilot model because of an issue with the driver and front passenger’s seat belt.
“Honda initiated this voluntary recall due to a manufacturing error on a small number of front seat belts, where the stitching connecting the lap section of the belt to the outboard anchor webbing may be incomplete or missing. In a crash, affected seat belts may become disconnected from the anchor webbing, increasing the risk of injury”, as it is written in an official Honda statement.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn’t reported any injuries or deaths related to this condition. According to the automaker, 310.773 Pilot SUVs will be affected by the recall in the United States.
The Japanese car manufacturer said that the issue with the seat belts will be fixed free of charge. Honda didn’t announce an exact date when owners of the 2009 to 2011 made Pilot owners will have to make a trip back to the dealership.
