MARKHAM, ON, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Honda Canada will voluntarily recall
9,954 Pilot vehicles from the 2009 through 2011 model years in Canada
to inspect and potentially replace the driver's and/or front
passenger's seat belt.
Due to a manufacturing error on a small number of front seat belts, the
stitching connecting the lap section of the belt to the outboard anchor
webbing may be insufficient. In a crash, affected seat belts may become
disconnected from the anchor webbing, increasing the risk of injury. No
injuries or deaths have been reported related to this condition.
Honda Canada is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of
affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as
soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda.
Notification to customers will begin in late September 2011.
When Honda identifies concerns of this nature, nothing is more important
to the company than fulfilling our obligation and responsibility to
alert our customers. To this end, in addition to contacting customers
by mail, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their
vehicles require repair by going on-line to www.honda.ca/recalls or by calling Honda Canada Customer Relations at 1 (888) 9HONDA9.
