Additional information:

Among the 32 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

American Honda Motor Co.(“Honda”) has recalled an estimated 5,827 model year certain 2018 Honda Pilot and Ridgeline Vehicles and 2018 Acura MDX vehicles. The front driver and passenger powered seats in the Honda Vehicles and the driver powered seats in the Acura vehicles may have been assembled with improperly manufactured rivets.

In the event of a crash, the rivets can break causing the seats not to be secured to the floor. As such, these vehicles may fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 207, “Seating Systems,” and 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, if the seat does not remain secured to the floor, the seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.

Honda will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the driver seat frame assembly in Acura MDX vehicles, and replace the driver and front passenger seat slide rail frames in Honda Pilot and Ridgeline vehicles, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 18, 2018. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda’s reference numbers for this recall are D0S and T0T.
