Honda Pilot Seatbelt Problems Result in Recall of 310,773 Vehicles

Poorly stitched seatbelts have led to the recall of more than 300,000 Honda Pilot sport utility vehicles (SUVs). 

The Honda Pilot recall (pdf) was announced on September 9 by American Honda and affects vehicles from the 2009 through 2011 model years.

According to Honda, a manufacturing error led to incomplete or missing stitching on the seatbelts for a small number of the vehicles. The missing stitching is located where the lap section of the belt connects to the outboard anchor webbing

Although there have been no reported injuries or deaths in connection with the Honda Pilot seatbelt problems, this may pose a serious risk for consumers in a crash, as the lack of stitching could allow the seatbelt to become disconnected. The company told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it received two complaints about seatbelts that came detached.

Approximately 310,773 Honda Pilot are being recalled from model years 2009 through 2011, which were built between March 13, 2008 and August 30, 2011.

Owners of recalled Honda Pilot vehicles will be notified in writing by mail, and Honda is encouraging them to get their vehicle inspected at an authorized dealer as soon as they are notified. Inspection is the only way to determine whether a vehicle has the defective seatbelts.

Notices are expected to arrive around October 3, and owners can obtain additional information by calling Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
