Recall Information for the Airbag Recalls 14-045 & 14-046 & 14-040
The airbags in the recall are made by a 3rd party, Takata, not Honda and are provided to several manufacturers. Honda is still one of the best auto manufacturers in the world.
What are these recalls and what do they mean?
We want you to be aware of certain Honda vehicles, as well as many other makes and models, operated in areas known for high absolute humidity and heat may contain a driver and/or front passenger airbag that, over time, may be affected by exposure to the humidity, which could produce excessive internal pressure upon deployment. If an affected airbag deploys, the increased internal pressure may cause the inflator casing to rupture. Metal fragments could pass through the airbag cushion material and possibly cause harm to the vehicle driver and/or passengers.
Honda will be notifying customers of their recalls. Please watch your mail closely for these recall notices.
