NHTSA Campaign ID:SEAT BELTS
Manufacturer:Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Manufacture Dates:05/09/2017 - 06/01/2017
Potential Units Affected:3927

Defect Description:

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2018 Honda Odyssey vehicles.

The recall began July 31, 2017. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is KF7.
