Honda Says Airbag Inflators Were Installed Incorrectly
Honda recalls 494 vehicles after technicians made mistakes during a previous Takata recall.

— Honda is recalling 492 vehicles to replace front passenger airbag inflators because they may not have been installed correctly during a previous Takata airbag recall.

  • 2003-2012 Honda Accord
  • 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour
  • 2001-2011 Honda Civic
  • 2002-2011 Honda CR-V
  • 2003-2011 Honda Element
  • 2007-2013 Honda Fit
  • 2010-2012 Honda Insight
  • 2002-2004 Honda Odyssey
  • 2003-2012 Honda Pilot
  • 2012 Honda Ridgeline

Technicians at several dealerships may have installed the replacement inflators in such a way the airbags may fail to deploy in a crash. Honda has since allegedly taken steps to correct repair procedures to prevent this from reoccurring.

The dealers that made the errors are currently attempting to reach owners of affected vehicles to schedule inspections and repairs as soon as possible.

Mailed recalled notices to owners of any remaining unrepaired vehicles will begin in June 2018.

Owners may contact Honda customer service at 888-234-2138.
