Honda Recalls Several Models Over Seatbelt Issue

Honda is recalling nearly a half-million vehicles in the Untied States and Canada due to front seat belts being unable to latch properly.

The recall covers some of Hondas top models, these models are:

  • 2017-2020 CR-V
  • 2018 and 2019 Accord
  • 2018 – 2020 Odyssey
  • 2019 Insight
  • 2019 and 2020 Acura RDX

Honda released documents by U.S. safety regulations that the surface coating for the channel buckle may deteriorate over time. The release button may shrink over time against the channel at lower temperatures, increasing friction and stopping the button from latching.

If the buckle doesn’t latch, a driver or passenger may not be restrained in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Honda says it has no reports of injuries caused by the problem.

Dealers will replace the front seat belt buckle release buttons or the buckle assemblies if needed. Owners will be notified by letter starting April 17.
