Honda Recalls 1M Vehicles w/ Dangerous Airbags

About this Deal

Honda will most likely recall about 1 milion vehicles because the Takata driver's airbag inflators could be dangerous.

The models being recalled go as far back as 2001 and as recent as 2010. Takata used the chemical ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to inflate the airbags. However, this chemical can deteriorate over time, which could lead to it blowing apart the metal canister. This would hurl shrapnel into drivers and passengers. 23 people have died worldwide because of this issue.

Affected Models:
  • Honda Accord from 2001 through 2007
  • CR-V from 2002 through 2006
  • Civic from 2001 through 2005
  • Element from 2003 through 2010
  • Odyssey from 2002 through 2004
  • Pilot from 2003 through 2008
  • Ridgeline from 2006

Luxury models from Acura are also being recalled. These luxury models include:
  • MDX from 2003 through 2006
  • EL from 2001 through 2005
  • TL from 2002 and 2003
  • CL from 2003

If your model is recalled, you will be told to take your vehicle to the dealer to have the inflators replaced.

Any time I see "Honda Recalled..." I'm checking what model. Luckily mine wasn't there before, and not in the list now. I feel sorry for the people who got hurt because of it :(
