Honda Recall Issued

Honda will voluntarily recall certain vehicles in the United States in three separate market actions to replace one or both front driver's and passenger's airbag inflators, free of charge. Honda is not alone. Other Japanese car makers also announced recalls because of potential Airbag issues. About 3 million cars are supposed to be affected according to Reuters.

Two of the market actions are specific to states and U.S. territories with high absolute humidity. It is possible that front airbag inflators in affected vehicles may deploy with too much pressure, which may cause the inflator casing to rupture and could result in injury.

Honda is aware of one claimed injury involving a driver's front airbag. Honda is not aware of any other injuries or fatalities related to these market actions. While the specific number of affected vehicles has not yet been determined, Honda estimates that the three actions will include a total of more than two million vehicles in the United States.

In two of the market actions, Honda is working in cooperation with the manufacturer of the airbag inflators and NHTSA to recall certain vehicles in 10 U.S. states and territories (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands) based on the high absolute humidity levels common to those areas. While the states and territories in which Honda is conducting these actions are broader than those suggested by the manufacturer of the airbag inflators (Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands), Honda has chosen to expand the affected area for these market actions because of similar environmental conditions in those areas.

Affected Honda Cars:

    2001-2007 Honda Accord with 4-cylinder engines

    2001-2002 Honda Accord  with V6 engines

    2001-2005 Honda Civic

    2002-2006 Honda CR-V

    2003-2011 Honda Element

    2002-2004 Honda Odyssey

    2003-2007 Honda Pilot

    2006 Honda Ridgeline

    2003-2006 Acura MDX

    2002-2003 Acura TL and CL

Honda is announcing these market actions to encourage owners to take their vehicles to an authorized Honda or Acura dealer as soon as they receive notification from Honda or Acura. Mailed notification to customers will begin in late-July, 2014. After that time, the most-updated available consumer information about these market actions will be obtainable at www.recalls.honda.com and www.recalls.acura.com.
