Honda Seat Belt Recall 2023

Nearly 500,000 Honda vehicles have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada because the front seat belts may not latch properly. According to a report from NPR:

<p>Honda says in documents posted Wednesday by U.S. safety regulators that the surface coating on the channel for the buckle can deteriorate over time. The release button can shrink against the channel at lower temperatures, increasing friction and stopping the buckle from latching.</p><p>If the buckle doesn't latch, a driver or passenger may not be restrained in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.</p>

So far, there have been no reports of injuries due to this problem. That being said, Honda will notify owners of recalled vehicles by letter beginning on April 17th. This letter will include information on how to get dealers to replace the front seat belt buckle release button or the buckle assemblies, if possible.
