It is the company’s SUV, CR-V, which accounts for most recalls of 2,577 units followed by the popular sedan, City with a total for 2,099 units while the Honda Jazz is least affected with a total of just 10 units. The 2003 Accord sees 350 faulty cars while the popular D-segment sedan, Civic, from 2006-2008 picks up 52 such cars with faulty airbag issue.
One can check if their car falls under the faulty airbag issue by submitting the 17-digit Vehicle Information Number (VIN) at the company’s website, (hondacarindia.com). If you look closely into the history of last decade of Honda recalling cars due to faulty airbags then the manufacturer has replaced about 21 million Takata airbags globally.
HCIL reiterates the importance of replacing the affected Takata front airbag inflators urgently as they may deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. The airbag inflator casing might rupture which may result in injury or safety risk to the vehicle occupants.
As part of the Takata airbag inflator recalls which have impacted several car makers globally, Honda Cars India continues to urge owners of Honda vehicles affected by the recall to get their vehicles repaired at authorized dealers as soon as possible.
