Honda Recalls Airbags for Third Time: Over 1,600,000 Hondas and Acuras Recalled for Dangerous Airbags


Honda Recalls Airbags for Third Time: Over 1,600,000 Hondas and Acuras Recalled for Dangerous Airbags

Yesterday, Honda voluntarily recalled a massive amount of its products — cars that have been sold and on the road for years — as 833,000 more Hondas and Acuras were recalled for faulty airbags.

It’s Honda’s 3rd airbag recall, bringing the total to 1.6 million recalled Honda airbags.

According to Honda’s May 2, 2011 press release (read it here), a wide variety of Honda vehicles apparently have airbags that can inflate without warning if they’ve got enough pressure.

No crash. Big surprise. Boom.

Of particular concern is the fact that these aren’t new cars. These are Hondas and Acuras that have been on Illinois and Indiana roadways for several years now. Once again, an example of the reality that just because you’ve had a product for awhile without a problem, it doesn’t mean that the product is safe.

Defective products that are assumed to be trustworthy kill and serious injure people in this country every day. Be careful to get these cars fixed.

If you or a loved one drive any of the following vehicles, then

(1) contact Honda at (800) 999-1009 and select option 4 or
(2) contact Acura at (800) 382-2238 and select option 4 or
(3) call your nearest dealership for instructions on what to do.
