Honda recalls some vehicles in US over airbag flaw






WASHINGTON: Honda is recalling about 748,000 Pilot and Odyssey vehicles in the United States because of a potential flaw in the driver's side airbag, the Japanese automaker said on Friday.

Honda said the airbags may have been made without some of the rivets that secure its plastic cover.

"If the rivets are missing, the airbag may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash," the company said.

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the problem, it said.

The recall affects Pilot sport-utility vehicles made for the 2009-2013 model years and 2011-2013 Odyssey minivans.

The vehicles will be inspected and the driver's side airbag will be replaced if necessary, the company said.
