The contact owns a 2016 Honda Pilot. The contact stated that the driver's seat belt failed to work. The driver's side belt was very tight, especially for people of different sizes to buckle up. The failure occurred without warning. The vehicle was taken to peters Honda of nashua (300 amherst St, nashua, nh 03063) and the dealer stated that the vehicle was designed that way. The dealer stated that the contact could buy a Honda seat belt extender to remedy the failure. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was contacted at 800-999-1009 and stated that the Honda was designed that way and nothing could be done. A case number was not provided. The approximate failure mileage was 30,000.

When securing the driver's side seatbelt, it seemed to be too tight and did not allow room to reach the dash. Took it back to the dealership and they lubricated it and said it was working fine. It still continued to feel too tight - especially when compared to the passenger side. So, I stopped by a Honda dealership and tried the seatbelt in one of their 2016 models and found that it had the same snugness as my vehicle. I have since measured both the driver's seatbelt and the front passenger seatbelt. The result was that the driver's side belt is a full 24 inches shorter than the front passenger belt, when fully extended. I feel that if it is tight on me, it could pose a problem for others as well. It should be noted that, even though the belt was a little snug, I really did not notice it until I was wearing bulky winter clothing and heavy coat.
