American Honda Motor Company Has Recalled 2000-2001 Honda Accord & 2000-2001 Honda Civic

(SafetyAlerts) -  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 2000-2001 Honda Accord & 2000-2001Honda Civic.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 16,459

Manufactured: July -- September 2000

Defect: Some sedans and coupes fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." Certain rear seat belt buckles were improperly manufactured. The rear seat belts will work properly and provide protection in a crash, but the owner may experience difficulty unfastening the belt after the crash. Only buckles that are marked (on the back side of the buckle) with an assembly number beginning with 00185, 00186, or 00187 have the problem.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace the seat belt assemblies that were improperly manufactured. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during January 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

[NHTSA Recall No. 01V380.
