Honda Malaysia has announced that it will extend the operations of its Mobile Hubs (MH) for Takata airbag inflator replacement activities to three mall venues every weekend in the Central region, Johor Bahru, Kedah and Penang until March 2017. The company’s door-to-door airbag inflator replacement service offered by 84 authorised Honda dealers nationwide will also be extended to March 2017 (from December 31, 2016).

In addition, Honda Malaysia will continue its efforts to reach out to affected customers with the introduction of a mobile caravan service, which will be active seven days a week to provide on-the-spot airbag inflator replacements for affected customers. Mobile teams will also be deployed that will visit used car dealers and corporate companies for on-the-spot replacements within the Central region.

These measures are part of Honda Malaysia’s effort to accelerate the replacement of affected Takata front airbag inflators, and are in addition to the replacement services that are available at every Honda Family Road Trip and Honda Mobile Roadshow.

Meanwhile, the operations of its temporary Service Central Hubs (SCH) for Takata airbag inflator replacement activities will come to an end on December 31, 2016, after previously being extended back in October. However, customers can still get their airbag inflators replaced at any authorised Honda dealer nationwide.

The company had previously announced that the stock availability of front passenger airbag inflators is targeted to reach 70% in December, while it is 100% for the driver airbag inflator 100% for some time now.
