RepairPal Expert Overview
Honda recalled certain 2004-2005 Civic models for inspection of the front seat belt anchors. Some front seat belt anchors may exhibit restricted movement due to an incorrect washer installed. This restricted movement may cause improper positioning of the seat belt, which could increase the risk of occupant injury in a crash.
