MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Honda will voluntarily recall
approximately 29,000 units of model-year 2009-2013 Pilot and 2011-2013
Odyssey vehicles in Canada to inspect and, if necessary, replace the
driver's airbag. The driver's airbag in these vehicles potentially were
assembled without some of the rivets that secure the airbag's plastic
cover. If the rivets are missing, the airbag may not deploy properly,
increasing the risk of injury in a crash. No crashes or injuries have
been reported related to this issue.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they
receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to
customers will begin in mid-February, 2013. In addition to contacting
customers by mail, starting January 18, owners of these vehicles will
be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going to www.honda.ca/recalls or by contacting Honda Canada Customer Relations at 1-888-9HONDA9.
