Last month, Honda announced the recall of another 273,000 vehicles due to “defective airbag deployment systems.” The recall was an addition to a previous recall of 600,000 Honda vehicles with airbag defects.
The added vehicles include Honda Civics, CRVs, Accords, Pilots, Odysseys, and Acuras. The vehicle manufacturer requested that used car dealers stop selling the recalled vehicles until any airbag defects are repaired. In addition, Honda has sent out notices to all owners of car involved in the recall.
Honda received complaints from owners that when the vehicles’ airbags deploy, broken metal flies out from the area around the airbag. 1 person was killed and 12 people were injured by the airbag defect.
