Honda says this is the fourth phase of scheduled Takata airbag recalls announced by the government in 2016 for inflators that don't contain a desiccant to absorb moisture.

The automaker says it has made a lot of progress with existing recall repairs because plenty of replace airbag inflators are available. The 77.7 percent completion rate out of nearly 13 million recalled vehicles has allowed Honda to issue the recall now instead of waiting until December.

Affected owners who had their driver-side airbag inflators replaced will need to return to dealers to have the passenger frontal inflators replaced.

Acura and Honda customers should watch for mailed recall notices in November.

If you own one of the recalled vehicles and have concerns, call Honda at 888-234-2138.
