Honda is recalling 310,773 Pilot SUVs from the years 2009-2011 because driver and passenger seat belts whose anchor webbing may not have been properly completed and could detach.
Honda said the first claim occurred in May 2010 of a seat belt anchor detaching and a second claim was made in July, prompting an investigation and recall. Honda will notify owners starting next month and dealers will replace the seat belts if necessary.
No injuries or deaths have been reported, but the latest recall adds to Honda's woes.
Last week, Honda announced a global recall of about 800,00 vehicles, including about 100,000 in the United States. The recall included about 80,000 CR-V sport utility vehicles from the 2006 model year in the U.S. to replace the power window master switch.
Honda recalled more than 5,000 CR-Z small hybrids from the 2011 model year in the U.S. The cars subject to the recall are equipped with manual transmissions and require an update to the software that controls the hybrid electric motor.
