Honda is planning to recall over 118,000 of its SUVs for random airbag deployment.
There is sharp metal in the steering wheel that can cut wires causing the airbag to deploy without warning. It can also cause other problems with steering wheel mechanisms like causing the horn to go off suddenly and lights on the dash to turn on for no reason.
Owners should bring their vehicle to a Honda dealership so they can get a free repair.
According to WKRN:
Drivers have enough to worry about while traversing the roadways on a daily basis. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car, there is a reasonable expectation that the car is going to perform in a matter that would not put the operator’s life in jeopardy. Unfortunately there are hundreds of vehicle recalls each year due to manufacturer defects, from the tires to the ignition switches, that can cause catastrophic injuries and in some cases death. If you or a loved one have been injured due to a defective part in a vehicle, contact Thomas J. Henry.
