In the event of a crash resulting in side curtain air bag deployment, the trim piece may not remain properly secured to the A-pillar, increasing the risk of injury to the driver and/or front seat passenger.
Honda is recalling certain model year Acura 2010 MDX vehicles manufactured between October 7, 2009 and November 14, 2009. A bolt used to attach an interior trim piece to either the driver's or passenger's side A-pillar may not have been installed during manufacturing.
Dealers will inspect the interior trim piece of the A-pillar and if a bolt is missing it will be installed free of charge. Four vehicles were purchased before the stop-sale was issued and all the vehicles have been inspected and repaired if necessary.
