The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a new recall for certain Pilot and Odyssey vehicles because of a problem with their airbags.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 748,481 units of the Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey, sold across the United States, will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbags fiexed.
“Inspection of other vehicles and components at the time led to the conclusion that this was an isolated incident. A subsequent investigation determined that a single missing airbag cover rivet would not affect compliance, and may only minimally affect safety”, as Honda said in its filling with the NHTSA.
The Honda Pilot cars affected are from the model year 2009-2013 and the Odyssey from the 2011-2013, and they have been manufactured between March 13, 2008 and December 21, 2012. No accidents or injuries related to this problem have been reported until now. Owners will be contacted by Honda and the recall is expected to begin soon.
