Recall roundup: 777,000 Honda vehicles in the U.S.

The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for 777,000 units of the Pilot and Odyssey vehicles in the United States because of a problem with the driver’s side airbags.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 777,000 units of the Pilot and Odyssey will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers because of a problem with the driver’s side airbags, which may not deploy in case of an accident. The NHTSA says that if ignored, this problem might lead to a crash of injury.

Some of the driver’s side airbags on certain vehicles may have been installed without the rivets that secure the airbag’s plastic cover and if these rivets are missing, the airbag will not deploy properly, increasing the risk of an injury in a crash. A total of 748,000 units of the Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey vehicles will be affected by this recall in the United States, along with 29,000 units in Canada. The recalled crossovers are from the model years 2009 – 2013 and the Odyssey from 2011 – 2013. The recall will begin in mid-February.
