Select Honda and Acura cars are being recalled to replace dangerous front passenger airbags made by Takata.
For their final phase of planned recalls, Honda has announced a recall on many Honda and Acura models sold from 2003 through 2015 due to dangerous airbag inflators.
The airbags, made by Takata, were created with the chemical ammonium nitrate and are prone to explode upon deployment and cause injury or death.
According to USA Today, 24 people have been killed and hundreds injured by the inflators worldwide.
