About the Expanded Honda Airbag Recall

Honda has recently announced it will expand its June recall of vehicles due to defective Takata airbag inflators. The airbags can deflate improperly, sending metal shards flying at passengers. The expanded recall affects the following vehicles:

  • 2001-2007 Honda Accord
  • 2001-2005 Honda Civic
  • 2002-2006 Honda CR-V

Additionally, the Honda recall is limited only to certain states and territories with high humidity, including: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. It is believed that the humidity plays a role in the defect.

Honda says on June 25 it learned of an accident involving a 2005 Accord which prompted the expanded recall. The is reported to have occurred at low speeds. The driver of the vehicle sustained severe burn injuries to the arms and legs from metal fragments.

Honda is one of several automakers that have recalled vehicles with the Takata airbags. Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, Ford, Chrysler, and BMW have all also issued recalls. Honda alone has recalled more than 6 million vehicles globally due to the defect.
