1 Million Honda Vehicles In US To Be Recalled Due To Faulty Airbags


Japanese carmaker Honda stated early this week that it will recall around 1.1 million of its vehicle models sold under Honda and Acura brand names from markets across United States for replacement of defective airbags from Takata that were installed on driver’s side. The firm stated that it had knowledge about one injury linked to this defect that could have caused the airbag rupture during a car crash. The cars which are involved in this recent recall had in the past been repaired by usage of Takata desiccated replacement inflators.

Honda has specified that free replacement of the defective parts would start immediately across United States and these replacement parts were being manufactured by alternate suppliers. The potential dangers of this defective part came under attention of Honda in 2004 when a front airbag deployed and split suddenly in one of its Honda Odyssey which was involved in an accident. The incident caused injuries to the driver’s arm and detailed investigations revealed that it was caused due to manufacturing errors at Mexico based factory of Takata. Apparently excessive moisture had been filled into the airbag’s inflator when it was being assembled that led to its rupture.

This error in its assembly unit at Monclova, Mexico plant of Honda could lead to propellant degradation within a small period and lead to higher than required pressure when the airbag is deployed. In these circumstances if the front airbag deploys itself it could also lead to rupture of its inflator which together may shoot sharp metal fragments at driver and passengers. The company said that total number of inflators that have been recalled by it is around 21 million that are part of 12.9 million Honda and Acura cars across United States that have Takata front airbags. Since 2018 automakers across United States have replaced more than 7.2 million Takata airbag inflators that were defective in their efforts to track down all defective parts that can be replaced.
