Honda has instituted a global recall of 835,000 Odyssey minivans and Pilot SUVs, which are produced at the automaker’s Alabama factory, to repair a potential problem with the vehicles’ airbags. The recall covers 2011 to 2013 Odysseys and 2009 to 2013 Pilots, which were produced at Honda’s Talladega County plant. The plant began producing the Odyssey in 2001 and the Pilot in 2004.
The airbags may not deploy properly in a crash because some of them were assembled without some of the rivets that secure their plastic cover. No crashes or injuries due to the flaw have been reported. Honda began an investigation into the issue when a worker at the Alabama factory noticed a missing rivet on an airbag. The mass recall follows another one involving Alabama-built Odysseys and Pilots, announced in December. That recall was for a defect that could cause the vehicles to roll away after the ignition key has been removed.
