Vehicles Affected: Approximately 25,000 model-year 2015-16 Honda Fit LX hatchbacks manufactured between April 11, 2014, and July 2, 2015, and not equipped with a sunroof
The Problem: The rear grab-handle brackets were not manufactured properly and could puncture the side curtain airbags upon deployment, putting passenger seat occupants at higher risk of an injury. Honda discovered the problem during testing; related incidents or injuries have been reported.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the rear grab-handle bracket for free.
What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners on Dec. 4. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
