American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 403 model year 2019 Honda Ridgelines and Pilots.
The mounting holes for the clip that secures the right center pillar trim panel may be larger than intended.
In the event of a crash necessitating right side curtain air bag deployment, the clip may not hold the center pillar trim panel in position and it may potentially interfere with the curtain air bag deployment.
If the curtain air bag does not deploy as intended, it can increase the risk of injury.
What to do
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will install a bracket on the right center pillar that will securely hold the center pillar trim clip, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 25, 2019.
Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is D3D.
