Recall: 3,00,000 Honda Cars With Faulty Airbags Still Unrepaired

Written By:

Honda has recalled so many cars around the world to fix the faulty Takata airbags. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 3,00,000 Honda cars in the U.S. haven't had this issue fixed.

The NHTSA also issued a warning for owners who have faulty airbags in their cars. The warning is to fix the faulty cars before June. Almost 13,000 cars are fixed according to the report by The Detroit News.

Mark Rosekind, NHTSA administrator said, "Every time we lose a life, it means we're not doing enough. We have to get people to know when they get (the recall notice), get it fixed. It's no cost. Get it fixed ... more needs to get done."

Last month there were some reports about a woman driving a 2001 Honda Civic died due to the faulty airbag. If it was fixed, that woman would be still alive.

The NHTSA officials also said that they have hired private investigators to track down owners so that they can send the mechanics directly to owners to have their cars fixed.

"We've had a significant number of meetings with Honda. It's just not happening fast enough for anybody," Rosekind concluded.
