Honda Extends Recall To Include 440,000 More Vehicles
Honda’s recent recall will now include more vehicles than was originally released. The recall includes specific makes of 2001-2003 Honda Accords, 2001 Civics and 2002-2004 Acura TLs. According to reports, the sudden recall is as a result of a defect in the airbag technology of these vehicles. On top of those in the original November recall, up to 440,00 vehicles are now also eligible for repair after the additional models have been added on.
Customers with vehicles that are affected under the recall will have their cars refitted with improved steering wheel airbags. Apparently, this is the component of the vehicles that is defective – Honda stated that, under certain circumstances, the air bag could possibly burst, releasing metal that could lead to personal injury for the driver.
