Honda Adds 2.6 Million Vehicles to Air Bag Recall List

hondaHonda Motor said it will expand an ‘investigative’ recall to replace potentially lethal Takata air bag inflators across the globe, taking the total Takata-related recall tally of all brands to more than 19 million since 2008. Separately, Mazda Motor said it will soon expand a recall of vehicles in the United States involving Takata’s potentially defective air bags.

Honda earlier added about 2.6 million cars in the United States when it expanded nationwide a recall of driver-side air bag inflators that was previously limited to 11 states and territories with hot and humid climates.

Honda is working out which models and how many vehicles would be covered under a similar recall in other markets, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

Takata’s air bag inflators have been found to rupture and shoot metal shards into the vehicle, and have been linked to five deaths. Read more on CNBC. (External link)

  1. Only da Hondas from 2008 to 2015. Da only Honda I evah had was a 750 Bike. I once used it on the beach. It was fun but the insurance company wouln’t cover it. I sold it for parts for more den I paid for it.

  2. Hey Joey, I got the tranny fixed and it didn’t need any major surgery like. So don’t worry the ’73 Grand Prix is back on da road. Wanna come wit me ta Barney’s ta get some snow tires, I got a rebate coopon. How come dey call dem coop-ons when you get money back? Dey should call dem coop-offs, but.

  3. To check your vehicle status, go to and type in your VIN. But keep in mind that the article stated Honda’s intent to expand and add more vehicles to the existing group, so even if you don’t see anything for your vehicle today, you may still want to check back in a few weeks for updated information. In the meantime try your best to avoid any collisions 🙂

  4. Wear your seat belt. Airbags can injure you. Like TG says try to avoid collisions. Don’t call or text. Stay alert. Check your mirrors. Make sure all your lights work. Get rid of your balding tires. Don’t mix tire brands and types. Your care can be recalled but you can’t.
