Honda Adds 378,758 Cars To Its Airbag Recall Page 2

Follow Richard

2003 Acura TL

As with nearly all Honda and Acura safety recalls, American Honda originally brought this matter to the attention of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and has kept NHTSA apprised of our decision to include additional vehicles in the expanded recall. At this time, there is no action required on the part of the customer. While we know the range of affected vehicles, we are currently processing the specific vehicle identification numbers (VINs) of the expanded group that will receive notifications by mail. We also expect to have more detailed recall information about specific vehicles available at this website beginning at 2:00 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, February 12, 2010.

Owners of these vehicles will be able to determine if their vehicle requires repair by going on-line or calling. Honda owners can go to http://owners.honda.com/recalls or call (800) 999-1009; Acura owners can go to http://owners.acura.com/recalls or call (800) 382-2238. If calling, customers should select menu item 4.

We apologize for any inconvenience or concern that this matter may cause to you or your family. Please rest assured that American Honda will make every effort to notify affected owners as soon as possible.

[Honda, DetNews]

  4. So much for the thousands of hours of testing - you'd think airbags would be a priority. I wonder what's not getting tested..

  5. I applaud Honda's voluntary expanded recall. However, this move may have been done only as a safeguard after Toyota faced a series of recalls. In addition, it is unfortunate that one person has already died due to this airbag problem. Auto makers should be responsible in designing and producing vehicles because the safety of drivers and passengers depends on it.

  6. @Ed: Don't worry, at some point, every automaker gets to endure the recall line (and the subsequent public relations nightmare). Perhaps you remember the great Ford/Firestone debacle of 2000?

  7. There's a big difference here. It's voluntary, and I don't hear any denial.

  8. Totally agree that Honda seems to have stepped up without the NHTSA beating them about the head & shoulders. Maybe it took Toyota's example, to make it happen, but ... kudos Honda.

  9. Honda is covering it's ass because clearly some people high-up in the US Government are FABRICATING ways to tarnish Honda and Toyota vehicles, so our crappy American cars have a slight chance of keeping a positive image (junk heaps that GM and Ford ARE)...
