Honda expands airbag defect recall

Posted on Tuesday, January 10th, 2012 at 11:04 am    

Honda recently expanded their airbag defect recall by adding 273,000 more vehicles to their list of vehicles with airbag deployment problems.  The first recall included 603,000 vehicles.

Involved in the recall are older model Honda Odysseys, Pilots, CRVs, Civics, Acuras, and Accords.  Honda stopped the sale of vehicles included in the recall from used car dealerships until all airbag defects are repaired.

Complaints from Honda owners revealed that some vehicles’ airbags release broken metal when deployed.  Investigators believe the defect is caused by an excess in pressure used to inflate the airbags.  12 people were injured and at least 1 person died because of the defect.
