Honda is recalling a small number of 2017-2018 Civics and CR-Vs] because of a loose magnet in the electronic power steering system.

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.

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.

It's a new year, so we're out with the old and in with the ... ahh, crap. There's another Takata recall for Honda owners? 2018 ... 2017 ... it's all the same.
This recall involves 717,000 vehicles which, I believe, brings the grand total of recalled vehicles to 72 quadrillion or so.
The Takata airbag inflators are at risk of exploding due to the metal inflators that contain the explosive chemical, ammonium nitrate. The chemical can become unstable due to heat, time and moisture, something that has already killed at least 21 people worldwide, most of those deaths occurring in Honda vehicles.
