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?

More About This Recall

  • It couldn’t have come at a better time because these Takata inflators are a serious risk to the 1.4 million owners waiting for their passenger-side replacements.
  • Be on the lookout for a mailed notice in November and tell your local Honda service center you want first dibs.
  • The sooner you get them out of your car, the better. Just ask this guy.
