There’s a new Honda Pilot coming in 2012, but before that happens, the Japanese automaker will have to deal with a massive recall for the SUV models built between 2009 and 2011. The official announcement says the automaker will have to deal with an issue with the driver and/or front passenger’s seat belt. The massive recall covers a total of 310,773 Pilot SUV in the US.

“Honda initiated this voluntary recall due to a manufacturing error on a small number of front seat belts, where the stitching connecting the lap section of the belt to the outboard anchor webbing may be incomplete or missing,”
the official statement reads. “In a crash, affected seat belts may become disconnected from the anchor webbing, increasing the risk of injury. No injuries or deaths have been reported related to this condition.”

This sounds like a potentially serious issue, and Honda plans to notify owners of all the affected models starting October of this year.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
