The seat belt buckle may not latch, increasing the risk of injury

American Honda Motor Co. is recalling 448,613 of the following vehicles:

  • Model year 
  • 2017-2020 CR-Vs,
  • Model year 2018-2019 Accords and Accord Hybrids,
  • Model year 2018-2020 Odysseys,
  • Model year 2019 Insights, and
  • Model year 2019-2020 Acura RDXs.

A manufacturing issue with the front seat belts may cause the seat belt buckle channel to interfere with the release button, preventing the seat belt buckle from latching.

An unlatched seat belt cannot properly restrain the seat occupant during a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

What to do

Dealers will replace the driver and front passenger seat belt buckle release buttons or the buckle assemblies -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters should be in the mail April 17, 2023.

Owners may contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are NDA, QDB, BDC, MDD, LD9. TDF, FDG, ODH, YDI, ZDE.
