TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- Japanese automaker Honda Motor Co. said it is preparing to recall 750,000 Pilot and Odyssey vehicles due to problems with the driver's side air bag.

The automaker is recalling 2009-2013 model year Pilot and 2011-2013 Odyssey vehicles, The Detroit News reported Friday.

The problem involves air bags that were installed without all of the rivets that hold the plastic cover in place, the newspaper said.

The air bags with missing rivets may not work properly, the company said.

Honda said it would begin to notify owners of the recalled cars in February.
