Honda is recalling nearly 6,000 model year 2018 Honda Pilot, Honda Ridgeline, and Acura MDX vehicles.

What's the problem?

The front driver and passenger powered seats in the affected Honda vehicles and the driver powered seats in the recalled Acura vehicles may have been assembled with improperly manufactured rivets.

In the event of a crash, the rivets can break, causing the seats to become unsecured to the floor. This puts the seat occupants at an increased risk of injury.

Because of this issue, these vehicles also fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 207, "Seating Systems," and 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."

What happens next?

Owners of the recalled Pilot, Ridgeline, and MDX vehicles will receive notification from Honda beginning in mid-May 2018. Dealers will then 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.

All repairs related to this recall will be completed free of charge to vehicles owners.
