Honda Announces Massive Recall For Seatbelt Issues, Includes Popular 2018-2020 Odyssey Models

Half a million Honda and Honda made vehicles are being recalled after an issue was found with the vehicle’s seatbelts, which mechanism can deteriorate over time.

According to the Associated Press, the recall covers some of the the automaker’s top-selling models including the 2017 through 2020 CR-V, the 2018 and 2019 Accord, the 2018 through 2020 Odyssey and the 2019 Insight. Also included is the Acura RDX from the 2019 and 2020 model years.

No injuries have been reported, but regulators believe that the surface coating on the channel for the buckle can deteriorate over time. The release button can shrink against the channel at lower temperatures, increasing friction and stopping the buckle from latching.
