The latest recall involves vehicles manufactured from 2007 to 2011. About one million of the vehicles being recalled are in Japan. North American was not included in this latest recall.
According to CNBC, Honda Co. collected about 1,000 Takata-made airbag inflators from Honda vehicles that were not previously covered in the recall. After analyzing the inflators and the data provided by Takata, the vehicles were placed on the recall list.
Nissan just disclosed the first accident injury related to Takata airbags, which occurred in Japan as well.
Takata airbags have been linked to approximately 130 injuries and eight deaths. One U.S. Senator is pressuring Takata to set up a compensation fund similar to what General Motors Co. did for those injured or killed due to the company’s faulty ignition switch.
Over the past seven years, Honda has recalled approximately 20 million cars, covering more than a dozen different models, for the defective airbags. There is no information on whether consumers should expect further recalls.
