Honda Takata Air-Bag Recall Expands

More Honda models recalled over air-bag inflator issue.

The massive Takata Air-Bag Recall has expanded to include more Honda cars.

The latest advice from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) shows additional vehicles are affected beyond this earlier recall advice received last year.

The new models affected include 2011 Model Year Honda CR-V, MY12 Honda City, MY12-13 Honda Insight and MY12-14Y Honda Jazz.

The ACCC recall notice once again advising that in certain vehicles, the driver’s front air-bag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure upon deployment. If an affected airbag deploys, the increased internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture and deploy abnormally.

In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material possibly causing serious injury or fatality to vehicle occupants.

Once parts availability is confirmed, owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail in accordance with the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) Code of Practice and advised to take their vehicle to a Honda Dealer. The Dealer will replace the driver’s front SRS air-bag inflator, at no cost to the customer.
