Honda recently recalled 310,773 Pilots in the U.S. to inspect and potentially replace the front seat belts due to problems with the stitching in the belt. The years affected by the recall are 2009-2011.
The belt’s stitching may be incomplete or missing, insinuating that they could come lose in the event of a car accident. If you own a Honda Pilot, you should take them to an authorized dealer for inspection.
What is an Auto Defect?Frequently automobile accidents or injuries are caused by vehicle defects such as brake failure, airbag malfunction, seat belt unlatching, door latch failure or some other component of the vehicle that is not working properly. Auto manufacturers may be held responsible for any injuries or death which is the result of a motor vehicle defect. Car manufacturers are responsible for making vehicles that are free from defects and safety hazards that can injure the driver or passengers.
