Default Airbag Issues Spur Honda, Acura To Recall Vehicles, Again

Honda, particularly hard-hit by its reliance on Takata as its sole airbag supplier for years, has been forced to recall vehicles again that have already by touched by the major airbag recall. The automaker has been forced to recall 19,000 vehicles that have already had their airbag inflators replaced to recall the vehicles again for new replacements.

While there hasn’t been much noise about it lately, the Takata airbag recall and its aftermath continue to roil the auto industry. For example, Honda and Acura have launched a recalled for 19,000 vehicles to replace improperly installed airbags. Honda first installed the safety devices as part of the massive Takata airbag recall.

Reason For Recalls Is Improper Installation

The reason the replacement of the replacements is necessary is that, according to Honda, “dealer technicians at several U.S. dealers may have installed replacement inflators incorrectly.” The result is that the front airbags may not deploy properly in a crash, increasing the chance of injury.

This recall is similar to 2017 and 2018 recall campaigns. Honda says there have been no improper deployments or injuries as a result of this problem.
