2016 Honda Fit AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW, STRUCTURE NHTSA Campaign #15V697000
Summary: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Fit LX-trim vehicles manufactured April 11, 2014, to July 02, 2015 and not equipped with a sunroof.

Consequence: If the side curtain air bags are punctured upon deployment, the outboard seat occupants may be at a higher risk of injury during a crash.
