American Honda Motor Company is recalling 303,770 model year 2023-2024 Accords and HR-Vs.

ConsumerConnect learnt the front seat belt pretensioners may be missing the rivet that secures the quick connector and wire plate.

The automobile manufacturer said that a seat belt pretensioner missing a rivet would not restrain the occupant properly, increasing the risk of injury to consumers in a crash, agency report  stated.

In regard to what to do in addressing the defect, Honda noted the dealers would inspect and replace the seat belt pretensioner assemblies — as necessary — free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 8, 2024.

Meanwhile, affected vehicle owners may contact Honda Customer Service on (888) 234-2138, and Honda’s numbers for this recall are MG7 and NG5.
