Honda issues recall for 748,000 Pilot and Odyssey vehicles for potential airbag problem

TORRANCE, Calif. - Honda is recalling 748,000 Pilot and Odyssey vehicles in the United States and Canada because of a possible problem with their driver's side airbags. The Japanese car maker says the airbags may have been assembled without some of the rivets needed to secure their cover. That could keep them from deploying properly in the event of a crash and increase the possibility of injury.

No crashes or injuries have been reported related to the issue.

The affected Pilot SUVs were made for the 2009 through 2013 model years, while the Odyssey minivans in question were made for the 2011 through 2013 model years. Spokeswoman Maki Inoue says the vehicles were assembled at the company's manufacturing plant in Lincoln, Ala.

The recall applies to 29,000 cars in Canada.
