Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,800 model-year 2018 Acura MDX SUVs and Honda Pilot SUVs and Ridgeline pickup trucks
The Problem: The power driver seats in the Acuras, and the power driver and front passenger seats in the Hondas, may have been assembled with improperly manufactured rivets; in the event of a crash the rivets can break, causing the seats not to be secured to the floor and increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the driver seat frame assembly in the Acuras, and replace the driver and front passenger seat slide rail frames in the Hondas, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Acura manufacturer Honda will begin notifying owners May 18. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
