Faulty air bag parts prompt Honda to re-recall 1 million cars

Honda to recall around 1million vehicles with dangerous air bags

Honda will replace airbag inflators and modules with updated parts in the affected vehicles.

The automaker said in government fillings that it is aware of one injury related to the defective airbag inflators in the latest round of recalled vehicles.

Automakers in the United States repaired more than 7.2 million defective Takata air bag inflators in 2018, as companies have ramped up efforts to track down parts in need of replacement.

Transport Canada, the country's transportation safety agency, said vehicles covered include those that were under previous recalls and others that had air bags replaced after collisions.

An investigation later showed that manufacturing issues at Takata's Mexico facility introduced excessive moisture into the inflator during assembly, leading to the problem. The driver suffered an arm injury. Over 700,000 Acura and Honda cars were manufactured in Canada in 2013.

The airbag recalls continue as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed Acura and Honda will recall 1,108,939 vehicles to replace an air bag inflator which was created to fix a previous Takata recall.

Also included are certain 2003 Acura 3.2CL cars, as well as the 2013 to 2016 ILX, the 2003 to 2006 MDX, the 2007 to 2016 RDX, the 2002 to 2003 3.2TL, the 2004 to 2006 and 2009 to 2014 TL, and the 2010 to 2013 ZDX.

Honda is offering free loaner cars while vehicles are being repaired. They contained a moisture-absorbing chemical and previously were believed to be safe.

The recalls are part of the largest series of automotive recalls in US history. About 100 million inflators are to be recalled worldwide.
