Earlier this year, Honda had announced a recall of 3,699 units of the Accord that were manufactured between 2003 and 2006. The idea was to replace the front airbag inflators which would deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. This lead to a possibility of the inflator case rupturing and harming the occupants of the car.

Thoughts About Honda Recalling Previous-Generation Cars To Fix Faults

Very good initiative by Honda. We think all manufacturers recall vehicles whenever they find a faulty component. Safety is a big factor for every manufacturer and we're happy that all of them take safety seriously. We wonder if someone from the government is reading this - they need to learn about public safety from auto manufacturers.
