LOS ANGELES (AP) - Honda Motor Co. says it is recalling 310,773
Pilot vehicles in the U.S. to inspect and potentially replace the
front seat belts due to problems with the belts' stitching.
Honda said Friday it is voluntarily recalling Pilots from the
2009 through 2011 model years.
The automaker says that the driver- and front-passenger seat
belts may have been manufactured improperly.
The stitching connecting the lap section of the belts to the
outboard anchor webbing may be incomplete or missing. That means
the belts may potentially come loose in a crash, increasing the
risk of injury.
Honda says there have been no injuries because of the defects.
Honda wants owners of the recall-affected Pilots to take them to
an authorized dealer for inspection when they receive a recall
