2019 Pilot and Ridgeline Have Trim Panels That Interfere with Airbags

Clips designed to hold the 2019 Pilot and Rideline’s b-pillar panels in place have mounting holes that are too big. Why does that matter? Because it could stop the side curtain airbags from deploying in a crash. Seriously.

Honda says the side curtain airbags may not deploy properly if the panels interfere with the curtain airbags.

About 400 vehicles have been recalled to install brackets … to hold the clips … to hold the panels.

Efficiency at its best.
