Honda hasn’t said when the recall will begin, but the moment it does you need to get your airbags serviced. This is a very dangerous problem that demands attention. Concerned owners with questions can contact Honda customer service at 800-999-1009.
About the Takata Airbag Inflators
Airbag inflators are metal canisters with compressed gas that deploy the airbag during an accident. Takata’s inflators are defective and have a nasty tendency of rupturing while deploying. That means in addition to the airbag shooting out, you’ll also have sharp, metal shards flying throughout the cabin.
Takata says it is still trying to find the root cause of the problem, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is tired of waiting. The safety agency has been fining Takata $14,000 a day while they wait for answers. It should be noted that Honda has been cooperating and is even looking for new airbag inflator manufacturers to get replacement parts faster.
