Honda has recently announced a recall which is affecting some of its models because of the Takata airbag problems.
According to the Japanese based automaker, several 2001 – 2006 model year vehicles will be the subject of a new recall because of the problem with the Takata airbags. The affected vehicles have been sold originally and registered in 13 U.S. states and territories and they include the 2003 – 2005 Honda Accord, the 2001 – 2005 Civic, 2003 – 2005 Pilot, 2002 – 2004 Odyssey, 2003 – 2004 Element, 2002 – 2005 CR-V, 2003 – 2005 Acura MDX and the 2005 Acura RL.
“The same repair required in the prior safety improvement campaign, replacement of the passenger front airbag inflator, free of charge, will apply to vehicles now included in this recall”, says the carmaker in its official press release.
The good news is that no injuries or fatalities have been confirmed, related to this issue, but the bad news is that owners of the vehicles mentioned above will have to schedule an appointment with the dealership. Owners of these models will be notified by Honda and the recall is expected to begin in early December, this year.
