Recall Alert: 2004-2007 Honda Accord

2007 Honda Accord

CARS.COM

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 11,000 model-year 2004-07 Honda Accord cars manufactured from Oct. 1, 2003 through Aug. 17, 2007

The Problem: These vehicles may have an incorrect passenger frontal airbag module that does not comply with the U.S. advanced airbag requirements, increasing the risk of injury or death in a crash.

In a statement, Honda said all of the vehicles included in this recall also are affected by the massive ongoing recall involving front passenger airbag inflators manufactured by Japan’s Takata Corp. This latest problem was discovered during that recall repair process. Original airbag modules designed for installation into vehicles for sale in South America mistakenly were supplied during production of U.S.-specification Accords. If a vehicle already has been repaired as part of the Takata action, it will not be included in this latest recall. The automaker said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the airbag module as necessary for free.

What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners on May 5. Owners can call the automaker at 800-999-1009 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
