Honda airbag

Honda Malaysia has announced another recall involving potentially faulty Takata airbag inflators. The recall involves 147,894 vehicles, and will see the front passenger airbag inflator being replaced in these vehicles. The latest round is almost identical in volume to the recall issued a year ago, though the scope of that one was on replacing the driver’s side airbag inflator in the affected cars.

A total of eight models are involved in this particular round. The affected vehicle models are Accord (2003-2011 model year), City (2009-2011 model year), Civic (2007-2011 model year), CR-V (2008-2011 model year), Freed (2009-2011 model year), Insight (2011 model year), Jazz (2009-2011 model year) and Odyssey (2004-2008 model year).
