Honda is recalling 310,773 Pilot SUVs from the 2009-2011 model years for faulty driver and passenger seat belts. There is a possible issue of the seat belt anchor detaching due to an unfinished seat belt anchor webbing during the sewing process. The first issue was reported back in May 2010 with the seat belt anchor detaching and another was made in July, which prompted an investigation for the recall.

Notifications to owners will be sent out next month and if necessary, dealers will replace the seat belts on the vehicles.

Honda has issued a recall for 2011 Accord coupe and sedan, as well as Pilot SUV models regarding the front suspension assembly.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the problem stems from two areas – firstly, improperly tightened bolts where the front struts attach to the suspension and secondly, loose spindle nuts that could cause a loss of steering and potentially, the front suspension to collapse.

The problem is being blamed on faulty calibrations on machinery used to torque the bolts at the factory. In total 10,823 Accords and Pilots are affected by the recall and notified owners are urged to contact their local Honda dealer as soon as possible, who will inspect the affected parts and fix the problem  free of charge (notifications were sent out beginning on December 23 2010).

This recall comes on the heels of another one affecting the 2011 Accord and also the CR-V (Pilot’s smaller brother), where engine oil leaks are being attributed to improper block casting.
