A missing seatbelt belt part has prompted the recall of more than 300,000 Honda HR-V and Accord 2023-2024 models, the company and federal officials say.
A missing rivet could make the seatbelt pretensioner fail, potentially causing serious or fatal injury.
Honda is one of New Jersey’s most popular car brands, with the CR-V topping the sales charts for the Garden State in 2022, according to Edmunds.
Registered owners of all affected vehicles will be contacted by mail and asked to take their vehicle to an authorized Honda dealer, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. In New Jersey, shops were taking appointments for the middle to the end of January. Service advisors in the Garden State said the recall repair would take an entire day and that a loaner car would be recommended.
