Honda is recalling nearly half a million of its latest SUV models and light vehicles because the driver and front passenger seat belts may not latch properly, according to a U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report.
“The seat belt buckle channel for the driver and front passenger seat belts were manufactured out of specification, causing interference between the buckle channel and the release button,” Honda said in a statement.
“The buckle channel surface coating may deteriorate over time, and the release button may shrink against the channel at low temperatures, increasing friction.”
According to Honda, the increased friction can create latching problems.
A total of 448,613 vehicles in the United States are covered by the recall.
Owners of the models being recalled below will be contacted by mail by April 17. The seat belt buckle assembly will be replaced for free. The models being recalled are:
- 2017-2020 Honda CR-V
- 2018-2019 Honda Accord
- 2018-2019 Honda Accord Hybrid
- 2018-2020 Honda Odyssey
- 2019-2020 Acura RDX
- 2019 Honda Insight
