About the recall
A number of Honda models have been recalled for front driver and front passenger airbag inflators that were manufactured by Takata Corporation.
Due to this being a global recall that affects a number of manufacturers, there are some models that have limited parts availability. The majority of Honda vehicles have ample stock of replacement parts.
What is the defect with the Airbags?
The propellant in inflators in the Takata airbags subject to the recall may degrade after prolonged exposure to high absolute humidity and fluctuating high temperatures. Degraded propellant can cause inflator rupture during airbag deployment. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material, striking the vehicle occupants, and result in serious injury or death.
