Honda Motor Co. is expanding an earlier recall of Honda Accord and Crosstour vehicles to include 627 Honda Civic and Acura MDX vehicles from the 2012 model year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In certain vehicles, the side curtain airbags for the driver and front passenger may have a faulty inflator. In the event of an accident, the affected airbags will not deploy, increasing the risk of passenger injury.
Honda will begin notifying owners on Feb. 10, and the affected airbags will be replaced for free. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
