The Japanese car major, Honda Motor Co. recalls more than 300,000 Pilot SUV’s from the 2009 to 2011 models to inspect the faulty front seat belts, which possibly disconnects in a car crash increasing the risk of injury or death.
The company said that due to manufacturing error in the assembly of some vehicles, the stitch that connects the lap section of the belt to the outboard anchor webbing could be missing or incomplete.
No deaths or injuries reported yet, and this recall is a preventive exercise.
This week, prior to the latest Honda Pilot SUV problems, Honda Motor Co. said it was recalling almost 1 million cars sold worldwide, including the 100,000 sold in the United States.
This recall includes 80,000 CR-V sport utility vehicles from 2006 model in the US to replace a faulty power window master switch.
The carmaker also recalled back the 5,626 CR-Z small hybrid cars from 2011 model year in the United States. The recalled units are equipped with manual transmissions and require an update to the software that controls hybrid electric motor. This is due to the problem that can cause the units to roll backwards unexpectedly.
