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.
The 4th phase of Honda’s Takata airbag recall is set to get underway next month. Honda says it
has made a lot of progress with existing recall repairs because plenty of replace airbag inflators are available. The 77.7 percent completion rate out of nearly 13 million recalled vehicles has allowed Honda to issue the recall now instead of waiting until December.An automaker that’s actually ahead of schedule on a recall? What world is this?
Your vehicle might be involved in one of the largest and most dangerous recalls in automotive history. Honda is recalling 2.2 million vehicles with PSDI-5 Takata inflators. You've probably heard about Takata by now. They're the ones responsible for airbag inflators that explode with too much force, sometimes sending metal shrapnel flying throughout the cabin. They're also the ones that have been linked to a number of deaths and injuries.
