Recall 16V933000

Second Row Outboard Seats Release Lever Remains Unlocked

Recall Details

The locking mechanism for the second row seats that secures them after accessing the third row may stick in the unlocked position. Dealers will install an additional bracket and spring to both second row outboard seats free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The locking mechanism that secures the second row seats after releasing them to access the third row of seats may stick in the unlocked position. This would allow the seats to move unexpectedly, increasing risk of occupant injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Honda must be performed by a Honda dealership. Honda will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in January 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Honda dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
