Honda Malaysia has provided a status update on its Takata airbag inflator replacement programme, revealing the overall completion rate for both driver and passenger front airbag inflators replacement is at 70% as of August 8, 2017.

Individually, the completion rate for driver front airbag inflators is at 81.2%, whereas it is 59.5% for front passenger airbag inflators. Both figures represent an increase from those disclosed by HM in the month of July (80.2% for driver and 55.9% for front passenger).

Stock availability for both driver and front passenger airbag inflators continues to remain at 100% to ensure customers are able to have their affected Takata airbag inflators replaced. As part of ongoing efforts, HM will provide airbag replacement activities at Mobile Hubs in selected shopping malls, available every weekend in the month of August.
