Honda has issued a press release stating that it will recall 310,773 Pilot vehicles from the 2009 through 2011 model years in the U.S. "to inspect and potentially replace the driver’s and/or front passenger’s seat belt."
Apparently, the recall is due to what Honda is calline a "manufacturing error" on a number of the front seat belts. The term "error" is a euphemism for "defect." The defect is in bad or missing stitching which connects the lap portion of the belt to the anchor webbing, thus increasing the risk of serious injury.
The firm urges all affected Honda owners to have a specific inspection conducted by an authorized dealer. Honda states that the inspection - "and any necessary seat belt replacement" - will be free.
