Acura And Honda To Recall 1.1 Million Vehicles Over Faulty Airbag Inflator

The airbag recalls continue as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed Acura and Honda will recall 1,108,939 vehicles to replace an air bag inflator which was designed to fix a previous Takata recall.

According to the government, the recall impacts a number of different Acura models including the 2003 3.2CL, 2013-2016 ILX, 2013-2014 ILX Hybrid, 2003-2006 MDX, 2007-2016 RDX, 2002-2003 3.2TL, 2010-2013 ZDX, 2004-2006 TL and 2009-2014 TL.

A number of Honda models are also being recalled including the 2001-2005 Civic, 2003-2005 Civic Hybrid, 2001-2005 Civic GX NGV, 2003-2011 Element, 2007 Fit, 2002-2004 Odyssey, 2003-2008 Pilot and 2006-2014 Ridgeline. The company is also recalling the 2001-2007 and 2009 Accord as well as the 2002-2007 and 2010-2011 CR-V.

Only certain models from the aforementioned years are affected as the NHTSA says the recall involves vehicles which “received a replacement driver air bag inflator as part of a previous Takata inflator recall remedy or a replacement driver air bag module containing the same inflator type as a service part.” These replacement inflators have a “manufacturing error” which could cause them to explode. The government says this could cause sharp metal fragments to strike the driver or front passenger causing serious injury or death.

Acura and Honda will begin notifying owners on April 17th and they can schedule an appointment at their dealership to have a new air bag inflator installed free of charge. While notices won’t be sent out until next month, the NHTSA says dealers are ready to begin repairs immediately.

According to the NHTSA, Honda is aware of one injury related to the latest recall and they were first notified about the issue on March 21st, 2018.
