2004 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #3

Sep 292007

Pilot 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Honda Pilot. While driving 10 mph, another vehicle crashed into the rear driver side of the contact's vehicle. As a result, the retractable rear seat dislodged and slashed the face of the rear passenger. The rear passenger sustained a concussion. A police report was filed. As of October 3, 2007, the dealer and manufacturer had not inspected the vehicle. The current and failure mileages were 72,000.

As a child passenger safety instructor I want to inform you about the safety belt systems in the Honda Pilot, Acura MDX, Toyota sienna and any other vehicle with the center seating position lap/shoulder belt extending from the interior roof of the vehicle. Although lap/shoulder belts provide upper body protection, these belts do not fit children and some adults properly. Even children using backless boosters do not fit properly in the belt system. I do not have evidence of any injuries or deaths at this time. It is my observation, both personally and professionally, the manufacturers need to redesign this seat belt system.

My question is " why would a car manufacture install seat beats anchors in a over lapping fashion?" I have a 2004 Honda Pilot and I notice that the seat belts anchors for the third row seat ( middle & driver seat passenger) over lap each other, but in the second row seats they don't over lap. I took my Pilot to a Honda service center and I was told that it was done to create more space for the third row passengers and it was not a flaw design. This appears to be out of the normal installation for seat belt anchors.
