Vehicles Affected: Approximately 500 model-year 2003-12 Honda Accord sedans and Pilot minivans; model-year 2010 Accord Crosstour wagons; model-year 2001-11 Civic cars; model-year 2002-11 CR-V SUVs; model-year 2003-04, 2006-08 and 2011 Element SUVs; model-year 2007 and 2009-13 Fit hatchbacks; model-year 2010-12 Insight hybrid sedans; model-year 2002-04 Odyssey minivans; and model-year 2012 Ridgeline pickup trucks
The Problem: The front passenger airbag may have been installed incorrectly during replacement of Takata-equipped vehicles, which could cause it to deploy improperly in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. It should be noted that this recall is separate from the latest Takata recall expansion from January.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the passenger frontal airbag module assembly for free.
What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners June 1. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
