No 6. Honda, 1995 (3.7 million vehicles)
This recall involved Accords, Civics, and Preludes. The glitch involved the seatbelt release button. This was said to easily crack trapping the passenger in his seat. The only solution was cutting off the seatbelt which wasn’t possible for unfortunate passengers who were in a lonely place at the time of this calamity. As a result Honda had to replace the seatbelt release button of 3.7 million cars.
