Honda would like a do-over on a previous CR-V recall that was supposed to prevent the power window switches from melting and starting fires. Reports of fires and thermal events, such as melted switches, have actually surged since the vehicles were "fixed" following a 2012 recall. Honda now admits the repairs were probably insuffcient. 😳
Those replacement PSDI-5D Takata inflators that were supposedly safe? Now they're exploding too. The desiccated replacements were exposed to excess moisture during assembly. This rapidly degrades the propellant and allows pressure to build up over time, turning the inflator into a mini-grenade that explodes during airbag deployment.
2001-2002 Accord. 2001-2002 Civic. 2002 CR-V. 2002 Odyssey. 2003 Pilot. If you own one of these vehicles and you haven't replaced their Takata inflators, the next knock on your door could be from a Honda representitive. And you should answer ... it might just save your life.
