Honda Expands Airbag Recall, Does Not Include Washington State

Honda is expanding a recall on airbags manufactured by Takata Corporation that may explode on impact causing injury. Last month Honda and other auto manufacturers who use Takata airbags issued a recall.

This expansion includes vehicles sold in California and brings the total number of vehicles recalled to two million. That number could rise to three million as Honda puts forth every effort to make sure its customers are safe.

“It seems like humidity has something to do with the faulty airbags, so while the recall hasn’t affected us here in Washington State yet, we thought it was important to make people aware that has been reported as an issue in other places in case they have an issue,” said Tony Carter, general manager of Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “Of course, if anyone has any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.”

According to this article, “The vehicles affected by the recall are the 4-cylinder-engine-equipped 2001-7 Honda Accord; the 2001-2 Honda Accord V6; the 2001-5 Honda Civic; the 2002-6 Honda CR-V; the 2003-11 Honda Element; the 2002-4 Honda Odyssey; the 2003-7 Honda Pilot; the 2006 Honda Ridgeline; the 2003-6 Acura MDX; and the 2002-3 Acura TL and CL.”
