The campaign is Honda’s proactive effort to continuously ensure their customers’ safety. The affected Takata airbag inflators could deploy with excessive internal pressure when activated. In such case, the inflator casing would rupture, which could cause serious injury or death in the worst case to vehicle occupants.
Replacement of parts for this voluntary recall is FREE OF CHARGE and will take about one (1) hour in any of the 37 authorized Honda Car dealerships and three (3) authorized service outlets nationwide.
