2.2 Million More Hondas Recalled in Takata Airbag Recall
Posted On behalf of Schmidt Kramer on Feb 08, 2016 in Defective Products & Medications
The Takata airbag recall is still growing; Honda recently announced that it is recalling another 2.2 million vehicles to fix the airbag issue. That’s not all — Honda expects to recall another 341,000 vehicles due to an unrelated airbag malfunction.
To date, Honda and their luxury brand, Acura, have recalled 8.51 million automobiles — more than any other affected vehicle manufacturer. In total, the defective Takata airbags have forced 10 U.S. automakers to recall over 20 million vehicles across the nation. Models included in the latest Honda recall announcement include:
- 2005-12 Acura RL
- 2007-11 Honda CR-V
- 2007-early 2016 Acura RDX
- 2007-14 Honda Ridgeline
- 2009-14 Honda Fit
- 2009-14 Acura TL
- 2010-14 Honda FCX Clarity
- 2010- 14 Honda Insight
- 2010-13 Acura ZDX
- 2011-15 Honda CR-Z
- 2013-early 2016 Acura ILX
In addition to this latest recall, Honda as well as other automakers have found it challenging to get recalled automobiles repaired. Honda reports that only half of the vehicles recalled before this latest announcement have been repaired. The challenge may be worsened due to the fact that many recalled models are older which have likely been resold since their production.
Additional Honda Airbag Recall
Honda has recalled 341,000 Honda Accords that were produced from 2008 to 2010 due to a separate airbag issue. Two injuries have been reported to stem from airbag failures caused when the control module has been compromised by water. The airbags, produced by Continental, have led to a recall of approximately five million vehicles worldwide.
