MARKHAM, ON – Jan. 18, 2013 – Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 29,000 units of model-year 2009-2013 Pilot and 2011-2013 Odyssey vehicles in Canada to inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver’s airbag. The driver’s airbag in these vehicles potentially were assembled without some of the rivets that secure the airbag’s plastic cover. If the rivets are missing, the airbag may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. No crashes or injuries have been reported related to this issue.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin in mid-February, 2013. In addition to contacting customers by mail, starting January 18, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going to www.honda.ca/recalls or by contacting Honda Canada Customer Relations at 1-888-9HONDA9.
