Honda Malaysia (HM) has announced a recall for another 46,710 units in Malaysia. This round involves 26,186 units of the City (2008-2009 year of manufacture), Civic (2007-2009), CR-V (2007-2008) and Jazz (2007, 2009), which are affected by potentially faulty Takata front passenger airbag inflators. Also called in are 20,524 units of the Accord (2003–2007) for the driver’s airbag inflator.

The latest “precautionary update” comes after a similar one announced on 21 May. That one involved 87,182 units of Honda vehicles in Malaysia including the 2003-2008 Honda City, 2003-2008 Honda Civic, 2002-2007 Honda CR-V, 2004-2006 Honda Jazz and 2004-2005 Honda Stream. All current models are not affected.


All affected customers will receive notification letters from HM with further details. Work will be carried out once the parts are ready, and the cost of parts and labour will be borne by HM. The company urges owners of vehicles involved to get their cars checked and parts replaced at any authorised Honda dealer as soon as possible.
