According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda has recalled 310,773 Pilot SUVs manufactured between 2009 and 2011 due to a seat belt defect.
A statement from Honda says that they have received no reports of injuries or deaths caused by the seat belt defect. In the affected vehicles, stitching used to hold the front lap belts together could be incomplete or completely missing. The defect can cause a seat belt to split, possibly resulting in serious injury to drivers or passengers in the event of an accident.
Honda dealers say that they will inspect the recalled vehicles to see if there is a seat belt defect and replace seat belts in any vehicles that do. A statement from the car dealer reads, "the only way to conretely determine whether the seat belts in an affected vehicle were properly completed is through a specific inspection process conducted by an authorized dealer."
