Honda. Takata. Recall. Three words that I'm tired of typing and you're sick of hearing about. Yet here we are with another recall of 1.3 million Honda and Acura vehicles with ticking time-bombs for airbags. Many of the vehicles are being recalled for a second time.
You probably know the script by now:
- Over time Takata airbag inflators are susceptible to moisture.
- When that moisture mixes with the airbag's propellant, the inflators become unstable and can explode sending shrapnel throughout the cabin.
- The problem is responsible for 11 deaths in the USA alone.
Honda has now recalled 11.4 million vehicles for this problem. Eleven point four million! Find out if yours is on the most recent list.More information on carcomplaints.com
A large number of Honda vehicles have been recalled because they contain dangerous airbag inflators made by Takata. The shrapnel-hurling inflators have been recalled in over 37 million vehicles (and counting).
