In addition to 603,000 vehicles Honda recalled last year for defective airbag deployment systems, 273,000 more vehicles are included in the recall.
Honda recently announced the addition of thousands of more Honda Civics, Accords, Acuras, Pilots, Odysseys, and CRVs. Owners of the recalled models should have been notified by Honda about a potential airbag defect.
The vehicle manufacturer issued the initial recall after receiving complaints that pieces of metal are sent flying into the air when the vehicles’ airbags deploy. The airbag defect has resulted in the death of at least 1 person and injuries of 12.
Honda advised used car dealerships selling their vehicles to stop selling them until air bag defects are repaired.
