2018-19 Timing Belt Recall

About 94,000 Honda and Acura crossover SUVs, minivans, pickup trucks, and sedans are subject to a recall to replace potentially defective timing belts. The defect could cause engines to stall if the belts fail.

Documents filed with the NHTSA published Thursday said that the recall covers 2018-2019 Acura MDX and Honda Pilot models and 2019 Acura RLX, RLX Sport Hybrid, TLX, Honda Odyssey, and Ridgeline vehicles may house the defect. Of the 93,946 vehicles recalled, Honda estimates only 1 percent feature the bad timing belts, but each car fails during the manufacturing period where the flaw was discovered.

My vehicle's VIN wasn't included in the recall, but when I had my vehicle in for service for the tail light recall they did a timing belt inspection anyway to see if it was one of the impacted belts or not. Mine wasn't so they didn't need to replace the belt, but it is a pretty in depth procedure just to inspect the timing belt in the first place.

The cost to replace these timing belts is huge due to the labour. This will be costly if they have to do too many. I hope mine does not have to be done.
