TORRANCE, California — Honda is recalling 748,000 2009-'13 Honda Pilots and 2011-'13 Honda Odysseys in the U.S. because of an airbag problem, the automaker announced on Friday.

The driver-side airbags in the affected vehicles may have missing rivets.

"Driver-side airbags in these vehicles potentially were assembled without some of the rivets that secure the airbag's plastic cover," said Honda in a statement posted on its Web site. "If the rivets are missing, the airbag may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash."

Honda said no crashes or injuries have been reported related to the recall.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle recalls in the U.S., had not posted any information about this latest Honda recall on its Web site as of Tuesday.

Honda dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver-side airbag.

The recall is expected to begin in mid-February. Owners can contact Honda at (800) 999-1009.

Edmunds says: There will be a bit of a wait for this recall to get started, and for parts to become available.
