Honda expands recall for airbag risk

submitted on February 9, 2010 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
Honda Motor Co Ltd said on Tuesday (2/9/10) it would expand a recall by nearly 379,000 vehicles in the United States to replace an airbag deflator that could rupture and send shards toward the driver during an accident.

The problem has been linked to one fatality and 11 injuries, Honda said.

Honda had first announced the recall in November 2008 and broadened it again in July of last year. In total, about 826,000 vehicles are affected by the U.S. recalls.

The latest expansion of the recall applies to 2001 and 2002 model-year Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CR-V, and 2002 Acura TL vehicles.
