There are 2 separate recalls – one affecting the 2nd row center seat, and one affecting the 2nd row outboard seats – so make sure to read this entire article!
If you are using the 2nd row center seat, we would suggest doing the following to see if the seat is defective. The picture below is from page 2 of Honda’s instructions to the dealership on how to inspect the seat to see if it is defective.
If your lever returns to the lower position, you can continue to use your 2nd row center seat. If your lever sticks in the upper position then your seat is defective and you must stop using this 2nd row center seat until the dealership can fix it (repair procedure A is something the dealership does).
Until the dealership can fix the recall, Honda recommends that after using the 3rd row access lever, you return the 2nd row outboard seat to the desired position and THEN push down on the horizontal slide lever for that particular seat to ensure that the vehicle seat is locked into position. If your vehicle seat does not stay in a locked position after pushing down on the horizontal slide lever, then do NOT use this seating position until the dealership can fix it.
Honda will begin notifying owners Jan 23, 2017 about the recall and will repair the seat by installing an additional bracket and spring to each 2nd row outboard seat free of charge.
