Honda recalls 2.23 million vehicles to replace Takata inflators

Statement by American Honda Regarding Nationwide Recall of Certain Takata PSDI-5 Driver Front Airbag Inflators Feb 3, 2016 - TORRANCE, Calif. Approximately 2. 23 million Takata PSDI-5 driver front airbag inflators will require replacement in Honda and Acura vehicles in the U. S. Based on a recent Defect Information Report (16E-005) from the airbag inflator supplier, Takata, Honda will conduct a national recall (16V-061) of approximately 2. 23 million Honda and Acura vehicles in the United States to replace, free of charge to vehicle owners, the PSDI-5 Takata driver front airbag inflators installed in those vehicles. Honda has received no reports of Takata PSDI-5 inflator ruptures in Honda or Acura vehicles worldwide. Honda plans to replace all of these recalled inflators with new parts from an alternative supplier at no cost to owners of Honda and Acura vehicles. Due to the large volume of new inflators needed to repair vehicles, the necessary replacement parts will not become available until Summer 2016. As a result, owners of affected vehicles will be informed of the recall in an initial notification letter within 60 days. Once replacement parts become available, Honda will send a second notification letter to owners with instructions to pursue repair at their local authorized dealer. The second round of notifications will prioritize older model year vehicles located in certain High Absolute Humidity regions1 and will expand to other areas of the country as more replacement parts become available. The most up-to-date available consumer information about this action can be obtained at www. recalls. honda. com and www. recalls. acura. com or by calling (888) 234-2138. The list of specific vehicle identification numbers (VIN) to be included in this recall has not yet been determined. Therefore, a VIN search at our websites or NTHSA's recall site is not possible yet for this action.


We anticipate that concerned owners of the affected models will be able to accurately search their vehicles' recall status on these sites beginning on February 15, 2016. With this new action, a total of approximately 8. 51 million Honda and Acura vehicles have been or now are subject to replacement of a Takata driver and/or passenger front airbag inflator in the United States. Fourteen U. S. states and territories designated by Honda as High Absolute Humidity regions: Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, Saipan, Guam and American Samoa. RECALL Subject : Driver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator May Rupture Report Receipt Date: FEB 03, 2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,230,000 Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co. ) SUMMARY: Honda (American Honda Motor Co. ) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX Clarity, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture. CONSEQUENCE:In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death. REMEDY:Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's numbers for this recall are JX2, JX3 and JX4. NOTES:Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www. safercar. gov. (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co Ltd is expanding its recall in North America of late-model vehicles equipped with potentially defective Takata air bags, adding 2. 23 million vehicles.


The Japanese automaker said certain Acura and Honda vehicles from model years 2005-2016 are being recalled to replace Takata PSDI-5 driver-side inflators. It recalled another 269,000 similar models in Canada on Monday for the same issue. Takata Corp told U. S. safety regulators two weeks ago that about 3. 9 million PSDI-5 inflators sold to several different vehicle manufacturers could rupture and kill, or cause serious injury to vehicle occupants. Honda's latest recall is included in that count. The company said on Wednesday no PSDI-5 ruptures had been reported in its vehicles. The Japanese automaker also said it was recalling 341,000 Accords due to a separate issue affecting the electronic control unit used in supplemental restraint systems in 2008-2010 models, which could result in airbags failing to deploy. In addition, Honda's U. S. unit confirmed it had instructed U. S. dealers to stop selling some of its new model Civics equipped with 2. 0 liter base engines. The Accord and Civic are Honda's best-selling models in the United States, placed at fifth and sixth, respectively, in sales in 2015. Honda declined to comment on U. S. media reports that the order and a related recall notice were issued for around 34,000 new Civics, which have been selling briskly since U. S. sales began in November, due to a manufacturing issue which may cause engine damage or failure. Defective Takata inflators have been linked to nine U. S. deaths since 2004, all but one of them in older Honda vehicles. Honda previously has recalled more than 6 million U. S. vehicles since 2008 to replace defective Takata inflators.


Honda said the PSDI-5 inflators will be replaced, beginning this summer, with parts from another supplier. Its latest action indicates the continuing Takata recalls may not be over. On Tuesday, Democratic U. S. senators Richard Blumenthal and Edward Markey urged NHTSA to recall all cars with Takata inflators. The senators estimated that 24 million such vehicles remained on U. S. roads. On Wednesday, Democratic Senator Bill Nelson said "the never-ending flow of piecemeal recall announcements" on Takata air bags "needs to end". Asked about a broader recall, U. S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told reporters on Tuesday that NHTSA's investigation "has not been closed. There is still ongoing work. We will continue to take action as we deem appropriate. " Through December, NHTSA had recalled 23 million potentially defective Takata inflators in about 19 million vehicles. Two weeks ago, Takata agreed to seek the recall of a further 5. 1 million driver-side inflators, including the PSDI-5 types plus 1. 2 million SDI driver-side inflators. Automaker Honda has issued another recall of its vehicles this week to replace defective airbags installed in the cars. The recall is for 2. 23 million vehicles sold across the United States for more than a decade, bringing the total number of recalled Honda and Acura cars to 8. 51 million. Recalled vehicles will have their airbags replaced. The currently airbags are Takata PSDI-5 airbag inflators on the driver's side which can rupture when they deploy, spraying shrapnel at the vehicle's occupants. Nine deaths in Honda vehicles and over 100 injuries have been linked to the airbags. Repairs on affected vehicles will start this summer. The company will send vehicle owners a letter in coming weeks regarding the recall. 2005-2012 2007-2011 2007-2016 2007-2014 2009-2014 2009-2014 2010-2014 2010-2014 2010-2013 2011-2015 2013-2016
