Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Driver Airbag Rivet Recall: 2009-2013 
Honda Pilot and 2011-2013 Honda Odyssey 
MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 
29,000 units of model-year 2009-2013 Pilot and 2011-2013 Odyssey vehicles in 
Canada to inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver's airbag. The driver's 
airbag in these vehicles potentially were assembled without some of the rivets 
that secure the airbag's plastic cover. If the rivets are missing, the airbag 
may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. No crashes 
or injuries have been reported related to this issue. 
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles 
to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive 
notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will 
begin in mid-February, 2013. In addition to contacting customers by mail, 
starting January 18, owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if 
their vehicles require repair by going to www.honda.ca/recalls or by 
contacting Honda Canada Customer Relations at 1-888-9HONDA9.
