Takata Airbag Recall

Earlier in the month, Honda also issued a “Do Not Drive” warning noting that certain vehicles equipped with Takata Alpha driver-side airbag inflators may malfunction. Honda is warning drivers not to drive until the parts have been replaced. 

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Acting Administrator Ann Carlson added, “If you have a vehicle with a recalled Takata Alpha airbag, you must get it repaired now – for free. These inflators are two decades old now, and they pose a 50% chance of rupturing in even a minor crash. Don’t gamble with your life or the life of someone you love – schedule your free repair today before it’s too late.”

Affected models include: 

  • 2001-2002 Honda Accord 
  • 2001-2002 Honda Civic 
  • 2002 Honda CR-V 
  • 2002 Honda Odyssey 
  • 2003 Honda Pilot 
  • 2002-2003 Acura 3.2 TL

Replacement parts for this recall are currently available at no cost. For more information on the Takata airbag recall, vehicle owners may visit nhtsa.gov/vehicle-safety/takata-recall-spotlight.
