More than half-million vehicles have been recalled by Honda as the front seat belts may not latch properly.
The automaker said the issue comes from surface coating on the channel for the buckle which can deteriorate over time. The release button can shrink against the channel at lower temperatures, increasing friction and stopping the buckle from latching.
If the buckle doesn’t latch, a driver or passenger may not be restrained in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
The recall covers 2017 through 2020 CR-V. 2018 and 2019 Accord, 2018 through 2020 Odyssey, 2019 Insight, and 2019 and 2020 Acura RDX.
The company said it has no reports of injuries caused by the problem.
Dealers will replace the front seat belt buckle release buttons or the buckle assemblies if needed. Owners will be notified by letter starting April 17.
