Problem Summary:

HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2001-2003 CIVIC, MODEL YEAR 2002-2003 CR-V, AND MODEL YEAR 2002 ODYSSEY VEHICLES TO ADDRESS A SAFETY DEFECT IN THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL AIR BAG WHICH MAY PRODUCE EXCESSIVE INTERNAL PRESSURE CAUSING THE INFLATOR TO RUPTURE UPON DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIR BAG.

Corrective Action:

OWNERS OF ALL VEHICLES ON WHICH A DEFECTIVE AIR BAG MAY HAVE BEEN INSTALLED EITHER AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT, OR AS A REPLACEMENT, WILL BE NOTIFIED.
