U1B – Safety Recall: Driver’s and Front Passenger Replacement (Service Part) Seat-back Pad – 2017 Honda Civic

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V266
Manufacturer Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Components AIR BAGS, SEATS
Potential Number of Units Affected 69

 

Seatbacks may not have Openings for Air Bags

If the seat-mounted air bags cannot not deploy correctly in the event of a crash, there would be an increased risk of injury.

 

Summary

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback and Civic Type R vehicles. Driver and front passenger seatback pads sold as replacement service parts were made without slit openings for the seat-mounted side air bags. In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, the seatback pad would interfere and adversely affect air bag performance. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 214, “Side Impact Protection.”
