Honda Recalls 1.1 Million Vehicles For Second Time Over Takata Airbag Issues by Automotive1(m): 8:57am On Mar 14, 2019


Honda has been forced to recall 1.1 million vehicles to re-replace a faulty Takata airbag inflator that may rupture upon deployment.

All vehicles involved in this recall were previously repaired using a certain Takata airbag inflator (model PSDI-5D). Many of the initial fixes still contain dangerous parts that could result in explosions.

An investigation revealed that these inflators  experienced a manufacturing process error that allowed moisture to enter the inflators during the assembly – very similar to the problem that caused the Takata airbag recall in the first place.

Honda is now encouraging all owners of affected vehicles to schedule a repair at an authorized Honda dealer ASAP. All repairs will be performed free of charge.

Affected vehicles include:

2003 Acura 3.2CL

2013-2016 Acura ILX

2003-2006 Acura MDX

2002-2003 Acura 3.2TL

2004-2006 and 2009-2014 Acura TL

2007-2016 Acura RDX

2010-2013 Acura ZDX

2001-2007 and 2009 Honda Accord

2001-2005 Honda Civic

2002-2007 and 2010-2011 Honda CR-V

2003-2011 Honda Element

2007 Honda Fit

2002-2004 Honda Odyssey

2003-2008 Honda Pilot

2006-2014 Honda Ridgeline

With this recall, Honda says the total number of recalled Takata inflators is approximately 21 million units, with around 12.9 million Honda and Acura vehicles so far .

The recall, is part of a larger recall of Takata airbags, which can throw shrapnel if they explode after deteriorating over time due to heat and humidity. The issue has resulted in at least 23 deaths and hundreds of injuries.

If you a proud owner or you know someone that owns the affected vehicle models , please take this  news seriously.
