Honda recalls 67,095 minivehicles, 502 Acura TLs

TOKYO, March 22 Reuters is reporting that Ja[an's Honda Motor Co second largest automaker, said on Friday it was recalling 67,095 of its "Life" and "Life Dunk" mini-vehicles in Japan and a combined 502 Acura TL sedans in Japan and North America. The automaker estimates the combined costs of both recalls in Japan at 228.6 million yen ($1.73 million). Estimates for North America were not immediately available.

Honda said the seat belt of the 660cc mini-vehicles, which were built between January and April last year, could become unbuckled in a collision.

The automaker's U.S. unit also said it would recall 387 of its luxury Acura TL sedans in North America and 115 in Japan, where the car is known as the Inspire or the Saber, due to a problem with an airbag that may not inflate properly in some circumstances.

The cars affected were built between October 1999 and February 2000.

Honda said it did not know of any accidents arising from the faults.
