Honda has been on a global recall campaign to replace faulty front airbag inflators that were manufactured by Takata. Honda Cars India Ltd. has now announced a recall for 5,088 cars that have been affected by this in India. Models include the previous-generation Honda City, the Civic, the Jazz, the CR-V and the Accord.
Of all the models affected by this recall, the Honda City and the CR-V account for a majority of the 5,088 units. 2,099 units of the Honda City manufactured between 2007 and 2013, and 2,577 units of the CR-V manufactured between 2003 and 2008; and in 2011 have been recalled.
The Honda Accord accounts for 350 units manufactured in 2003, the Honda Civic accounts for 52 units manufactured between 2006 and 2008, and the Honda Jazz accounts for 10 units manufactured between 2009 and 2012.
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.
The replacement of the faulty airbag inflators will be carried out for no cost at all Honda dealerships across the country. Honda has been getting in touch with owners of the affected cars directly and scheduling replacements.
Owners can check if their cars are affected by the recall themselves as well. This can be done by by submitting the 17-character alpha-numeric (VIN) Vehicle Identification Number on the company's micro-site or by getting in touch with their nearest Honda dealer.
Honda become the third auto manufacturer to issue a recall in July 2019. Ford recalled the Endeavour, the Figo, the Freestyle, and the Aspire, while Volvo issued a global recall for over five lakh cars 3,000 of which are in India.
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.
