Honda Adds to Its Airbag Recall

In what can be described as a little-by-little effort by the automotive company Honda to rectify a serious issue with airbags installed in a large number of its vehicles, more vehicles have been added to the expanding number of vehicles subject to a recall.

Beginning in 2008, the automobile manufacturer began a series of recalls concerning these dangerous products installed in vehicle makes such as Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CRV and Pilot. The latest announcement added vehicles of these makes manufactured in 2001 and 2002 to the recall. To date, over 2 million vehicles in the United States have been included in the company's airbag recall effort.

PROBLEMS WITH HONDA AIRBAGS

The airbags at question in the recall have injured passengers and drivers when pieces of metal are shot out of the airbag compartment when the airbag is deployed. According to an article in USA Today, there have been two fatalities and at least 20 car accidents attributed to this issue.

The Honda recalls, do, however, seem to contradict the trend in motor vehicle recalls that has been seen in recent years. According to INAUTONEWS, 2011 saw the fewest number of vehicles recalled (15.5 million) since 2008, which was nearly 5 million fewer than in 2010. Yet, the number of vehicles recalled by Honda in 2011 was approximately double the number the automaker recalled in 2010.

People that own Hondas should visit the Honda website to determine whether or not their vehicle is impacted by the recall. And, if it is, take that vehicle in to be fixed before a tragic accident occurs.
