The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for the Odyssey and Pilot vehicles, because of their faulty airbags.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 748,481 vehicles will be affected by this recall in the United States and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbags fixed. The NHTSA is saying that one or more rivets which are attaching the airbag module to the airbag have probably missed during the installation and this will alter the driver’s airbag performance in case of a collision.
The car manufacturer has already seen some problems with the airbags in some of its vehicles so this recall isn’t taking anyone by surprise, except maybe for the customers. Honda didn’t announce any reports of crashes or injuries related to this problem for the moment. The recall is expected to start soon but meanwhile, owners of the 2009 – 2013 Honda Pilot SUVs and 2011 – 2013 Honda Odyssey minivans are advised to contact the automaker at 1-800-999-1009.
