Honda recalls thousands of cars due to unsafe safety belts
Honda has announced a recall campaign targeting around 450,000 vehicles made in 2017–2020. The NHTSA specified that the action was prompted by faulty belts occasionally unable to secure the occupants of the car in place during road incidents, potentially leading to severe injury or death.
The list of recalled models includes Honda Insight, Acura RDX, Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey and Honda CR-V (shown here). The vast majority of the cars are being summoned for a simple check-up, though, as the manufacturer believes the fault only manifests in around 1% of the total production run.
Honda initially became aware of the problem as early as 2019, when owners of the models listed above began complaining about weak safety belts. The company had since been leading an internal investigation and the required resource tests before it could finally confirm the issue years later.
