Potential Number Of Units Affected: 8,168


Summary:
The following vehicles were repaired with incorrect parts: model year (MY) 2002 Acura 3.2TL sedans with replacement buckles installed per recall 01V-166001; certain MY 2000 Acura 3.2TL vehicles with replacement buckles installed as product update repairs; and certain MY 2000-2002 Acura 3.2TL vehicles with replacement buckles installed as warranty or collision repairs. Repairs were made from March 9 through July 27, 2001. Some of the noncompliant buckles were mislabeled and redistributed to Acura dealers to be used as recall repair parts. Honda also determined that incorrect front seat belt buckle replacement parts were used for some product update repairs of 2000 Acura 3.2TL vehicles, and warranty or collision repairs of 2000-2002 3.2TL vehicles. These seat belt buckles might not comply with requirements of FMVSS No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." In the event of a crash, the seat occupant may experience some difficulty in unfastening the belt after the crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front seat belt buckles. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Aug. 20, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
